Pathway to progress: Constructing a gateway to Jeffersonville’s historic downtown on Chestnut Street



He said that one of the main recommendations of the city’s bicycle and pedestrian plan, which was presented to residents at a meeting Thursday night, was to create a bicycle boulevard on Chestnut on the north side of Spring Street. A bicycle boulevard is a way to limit the amount of traffic on a road while still allowing vehicle traffic, but making it safer for bicyclists and pedestrians.



Pace Contracting LLC President Tom Wood said Chestnut Street will be closed for 60 days for its reconstruction and he expects the road to reopen by Sept. 15. The entire project is expected to be completed in late October or early November.

The most significant closure during the 60-day period will be in effect the first week. The intersection of Chestnut Street and Spring Street will be closed starting Monday, July 15. The intersection is slated to reopen Monday, July 22. During the closure a turnaround will be in place at the public parking lot off of Spring Street before the Chestnut Street intersection, across from Horner Novelty. For vehicles traveling northbound on Spring Street, away from the Ohio River, the road will be closed at Preservation Place, an alley between Spring and Pearl streets before the Chestnut Street intersection.

Chestnut Street, from Pearl to Spring streets, will remain closed through the duration of the project.
