Improvements at I-71/I-265 Interchange
Posted on Feb 9th, 2016
The following is from District 17 Councilman Glen Stuckel's eNewsletter dated 2.9.16

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recently awarded a contract for improvements to the interchange of Interstate 71 and Interstate 265.  This $11 million project includes construction of an extended exit lane from I-71 North to I-265 South.  This ramp will also be widened to two lanes.  A third driving lane will be constructed on I-265 South between the I-71 exit ramp and Westport Road.  This new lane will tie into the existing three-lane segment of I-265 at Westport Road.  As part of the design phase for this project, noise analysis was performed at the residential areas along the interstates.  Sound barriers will be installed adjacent to the residences in the project corridor. 

Work is scheduled to begin this week with relocation of the TRIMARC traffic cameras and utility lines.  Some temporary lane closures will be necessary for installation of construction barrier walls.  The date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur
 
Snow Removal in Louisville
Posted on Feb 9th, 2016
The following is from District 17 Metro Councilman Glen Stuckel's eNewsletter dated 2.9.16 and is posted for informational purposes only. 

Snow and ice removal in Louisville is performed by about 300 people from various metro departments and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.  They treat about 1,125 miles of roadway using 160 pieces of equipment.  Because they can only cover two lanes at a time per truck, and some roads have more than two lanes, crews travel nearly 2,700 miles to treat those roads.

Carbon Monoxide Tips
Posted on Jan 19th, 2016
From the Middletown Fire Protection District
 
Carbon Monoxide is a toxic gas, but, being colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-irritating, it is very hard to detect. Carbon Monoxide is a product of incomplete combustion of gasoline, natural gas and propane or improper ventilation of these gases.  Symptoms may include headaches and flu like effects; larger exposures can lead to significant toxicity of the central nervous system. (you may have trouble keeping your balance or walking). Prolonged exposure can even cause death.  There is only one way to detect carbon monoxide and that is with a UL listed detector.  There are several of these available to choose from at your local retail stores.  The electric with battery backup and digital read out is one of the most preferred.

Exit Drills In The Home (EDITH)
Posted on Jan 19th, 2016
From Chief Jeffrey Riddle, Middletown Fire Protection District
 
Did you know that it is a State law that all school systems must have fire drills?  They conduct fire drills to ensure that every student knows a primary and a secondary route to exit the building.  After exiting the building the teachers make sure that all of the students are accounted for.

Winter Plan
Posted on Jan 19th, 2016
 
Winter weather has officially graced all our doorsteps. The HOA Board just wanted to give you some information regarding our Snow Removal Plan.
 
While maintenance of the roads within Forest Springs is the responsibility of Louisville Metro government, neighborhood roads are no longer part of Metro’s snow and ice removal plan. A few years ago, the HOA determined that it was in the best interest of Forest Springs residents to pay for limited private snow removal and salting.

Posted on Nov 19th, 2015
Keep in mind the following tips while driving to help avoid deer collisions.  Deer collisions increase during the fall and winter months. 
 
1.  Use your high beams when there is no oncoming traffic. This allows you to see more of the road and animals that may be on either side.
 
2. Watch for road signs that identify areas more populated with deer.
