JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Homes in Jeffersonville are being lifted out of the ground and going under prep work to move across the historic district to make way for the Ohio River Bridges Project.

"They're part of the fabric of the history of Jeffersonville," said Mike Bosc who is doing public relations for INDOT of the homes, "and historic preservation groups agreed that these were worth preserving and so that's what we're doing."

Bosc said all five homes were vacant. They will be removed to make room for the new I-65 bridge and ramps. Crews are getting everything prepared and in the next few weeks they will move the houses onto their new grounds.

"The homes will be up for sale after they've been moved to these new locations," said Bosc. "The homes will be auctioned off to anyone who wants to buy those."

They expect once they begin moving the houses, it will take about three weeks before they're settled in place. Bosc told WAVE 3 News they're expecting the project to be complete by June 30. The two bridges still have a completion date as of now for the end of 2016.
