The proposed Interstate 65-71 Regional Connector bypassing Louisville is considering several routes that would cut directly across Bernheim. These routes may affect Highway 245 in Clermont or connect at the new interchange on I-65 and cross the Cedar Grove Wildlife Corridor. These tracts are subject to conservation easements and deed restrictions prohibiting destruction of natural features and granting of easements for non-conservation purposes such as highways. The Interstate 65-71 Regional Connector is a project that would begin in Bullitt County and cut across significant forests, streams, farmlands, and communities throughout the Salt River watershed. Alternative solutions and routes are possible which utilize existing roadways. These alternate routes provide less disturbance to natural lands, carry more traffic, cost half as much, and have the greatest safety impact based on the results of the highway study that is currently underway.
Stop, save our forest, for our children to enjoy too..
