Partners for Progress Mayoral Candidate Forum

During the Partners for Progress Mayoral Candidate Forum today, Tyler talked about a host of issues affecting Louisville & the West end, specifically, but was quoted by the Courier-Journal on just one, their favorite:
"Businessman Tyler Allen, another Democrat, has been a leader of the group 8664, which advocates a surface-level parkway downtown to replace Interstate 64 and building one new Ohio River bridge — in eastern Jefferson County — and not a downtown span.

In fact, it's a good thing. That parkway that the story gave mention to, well, it would be a graceful tool for connecting our community. Here's what it would look like:
