Jeffersonville requests state's assistance for Ind. 62 and Utica-Sellersburg Road intersection



As a result of the additional traffic, drivers are finding alternate routes. Moore said the city is getting complaints that traffic is spilling over onto side streets like Utica Pike and Middle Road, causing congestion in those areas.

Despite a number of unknowns, including specific changes to the intersection and cost, Moore said River Ridge and Jeffersonville have a willingness to pitch in to pay for the road improvements.

River Ridge Executive Director Jerry Acy said there have been some informal discussions about the intersection, but nothing has been decided and nothing has been presented to the River Ridge Development Authority Board.

“We’re at the mercy of the state stepping up and helping us. We’re confident they’re going to do that,” Moore said.

Clark County, Jeffersonville, River Ridge and the state all pledged money to make improvements at Ind. 62 and Salem-Noble Road. The total costs for the project to add turn lanes and signals to the intersection was $3.2 million.

Moore estimated that the improvements to Utica-Sellersburg Road will cost more than those made to the Salem-Noble Road
