The Ohio River Bridges Project in southern Indiana isn’t stopping at just building bridges. The Jeffersonville, IN, area it seems will be getting road projects all over the place in preparation for the new bridges.
City officials presented plans to widen and improve 10th Street to residents and business owners this week.
The plan is to widen 10th Street to two lanes in each direction, with a center turn lane, including sidewalks the length of the road widening from Penn Street and Dutch Lane, to Reeds Lane. A long-planned project, city leaders are hoping to get the road improvements under way before the Ohio River Bridges Project is set to be completed.
“The impact of this project is going to be so huge for the city of Jeffersonville,” said Mayor Mike Moore at Wednesday’s meeting. “We already know we’re drawing all kinds of commerce and new business to River Ridge; 10th street is where the people who work … at River Ridge are going to be utilizing to get back-and-forth. We’ve got a lot of storefronts and shops along 10th Street that have built the city of Jeffersonville. I’m proud to say we’re giving back to those mom-and-pop shops.”
The city has funding to pay for the widening of 10th Street up through property acquisition and utility relocation in 2015. However, a dispute on committing the construction dollars for the project exists between Moore and the Jeffersonville City Council.
