City of Jeffersonville finalizes plans for Big 4 Station

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jeffersonville residents and officials met Saturday morning to discuss the final plans for the Big 4 Station, a small park that will sit at the foot of the Big Four Pedestrian Bridge in downtown Jeffersonville.

Jeffersonville mayor Mike Moore says the city has been holding public forums about the construction and plans for the project since July.

About 100 Jeffersonville residents gathered at the Jeffersonville City Hall to hear about the final design for the Big 4 Station plans Saturday morning, the mayor says.

Moore says the ramp to the pedestrian bridge on the Indiana side should be finished in June or July of 2013.

The construction of the Big 4 Station will begin after the ramp is finished.

Moore says the city has made several changes to the plans, based on the opinions of nearby residents. They have plans to include an open air pavilion and a lit beacon in the park. The park will also include a family friendly playground.

The Big 4 Station will be smaller than Louisville's Waterfront Park, but will include opportunities for retail near the historic Spring Street district, according to the mayor.
