At one time L&N Railroad tracks physically crossed Baxter Avenue near Beargrass Creek and a small passenger train station platform built in 1910 was located near that intersection. As Louisville continued to grow, traffic congestion greatly increased at the confluence of multiple streets coming and going in many directions: Baxter Avenue, Liberty Street, Walnut Street, Jefferson Street and Lexington Road – plus the added complication of trains regularly crossing the area.
Due to this issue a large project was undertaken to raise the tracks above the road thereby alleviating the congestion. This effort was known as the “Grade Separation Project,” and was part of the United Stated Works Program (WPA). Linked below are articles from issues of the L&N Employees Magazine describing the project (two pages from June 1936 & three pages from February 1938).
