Entry Description

Historic Jeffersonville Houses to be Moved for Bridges Project


JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. – Preparatory work has begun for moving five historic homes in downtown Jeffersonville to make way for the Ohio River Bridges Project. Work is already underway at most of the homes and the vacant lots where the homes will be moved. 


Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractors have begun trimming approximately 15 trees within City of Jeffersonville right of way to make room along the routes being used to move the houses. Tree trimming will be limited to the minimum needed for the move, and the routes were selected in an effort to limit tree trimming.


Streetscape trees on the south side of Riverside Drive also must be removed and will be replaced with trees of similar size and species. During the tree trimming and house moving, parking restrictions will be in place. Signage will be placed to provide notification of the time and locations of these restrictions.


House moves are anticipated to begin in late May or early June and continue for approximately three weeks. Attached is a map of the routes that will be used.


The five homes were identified as contributing structures to the Old Jeffersonville Historic District. Under agreements with the Federal Highway Administration, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the historic preservation officers of Indiana and Kentucky, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, INDOT is relocating the homes to new locations within or near the Historic District.  After relocation, minor renovations will occur prior to the buildings being auctioned to new owners.
