Belknap Oval Opened At U Of L

University of Louisville officials Tuesday celebrated the completion of a new entrance to the Belknap Campus.The renovated Belknap Oval is on Third Street north of Eastern Parkway. It was paid for with 1.2 million state transportation dollars and a quarter million dollars of University funds.Outgoing Transportation Cabinet Secretary Joe Prathersays the oval is the first of many transportation projects at U of L."We have a total, including this, of some $9.8 million in projects that are going on all around the university, so this is a part of that funding," he says. "There's nothing questionable about this investment. Some investments, you see, you have a close call to make on whether it's a great use of the money. This one, it wasn't a close call, it was very much on the positive side."Other renovations include enhancements to streets running through campus and nearby interstate ramps.

Gabe Bullard is the director of news and editorial strategy.
