Indiana awards millions to Clarksville, Jeffersonville for road improvement projects

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The state of Indiana is awarding a million dollars from a $49 million grant to help pay for improvements to a bridge in Clarksville.

Crews will use the money to rebuild the McCullough Pike bridge over Brown Station Way. Officials say at least 25,000 cars use it everyday to travel between Clarksville and New Albany. 

Work is expected to start in the spring and take about four months.

"We truly want to keep Indiana and Clark County great, and we do this through the cooperative effort of building roads, infrastructure and providing for the safety and well-being of the citizens that live in this area," said Clark County Commissioner Jack Coffman. 

Jeffersonville is also getting $1 million to make improvements to East Tenth Street north of Holmans Lane. The grant program matches, dollar for dollar, community-raised funding for road projects.
