JEFFERSONVILLE - A groundbreaking ceremony will take place Friday in Jeffersonville to kick off construction on the next segment of the Heavy Haul Transportation Corridor. The $14.5 million project aims to provide a continuous route for heavy haul vehicles between River Ridge Commerce Center and the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville.

The new roadway will meet Heavy Haul standards and be designed to support vehicle weights up to 134,000 pounds. 

A new bridge will also be constructed over Lentzier Creek as part of the two-lane roadway project. 

Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore, INDOT officials, community and business leaders and project representatives will gather to make remarks at 11 a.m. 

The route is expected to be open to traffic by the end of 2021. To learn more about the project, click here
