Lawsuit claims Clarksville began construction in Jeffersonville without permission

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The city of Jeffersonville has filed a lawsuit against the town of Clarksville asking a judge to halt construction on a public right of way located within Jeffersonville's city limits. 

According to the lawsuit, the Clarksville Redevelopment Commission began construction of an extension of Court Avenue in Jeffersonville without its permission, and that construction has caused damage to the roadway. 

The lawsuit further states that there is no agreement between Clarksville and Jeffersonville to allow the project to take place on a public road in Jeffersonville, and that the construction without permission amounts to trespassing. 

The Town of Clarksville Redevelopment Commission also failed to get approval from Jeffersonville officials before closing Court Avenue at Missouri Avenue, according to the lawsuit, which also states that nearby businesses have been harmed by those actions. 

The lawsuit asks for an injunction to stop the construction and damages for the city of Jeffersonville and nearby businesses allegedly harmed by the construction.
