Posted: Updated:

JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) – Millions of dollars worth of improvements are coming 10th Street in Jeffersonville.

Work will be done on the major commercial corridor to widen the street and add turning lanes in addition to new sidewalks, landscaping and lighting.

The Indiana Department of Transportation will cover 80 percent of the $17 million project.

Mayor Mike Moore hopes the state will pick up the rest of the cost, otherwise city dollars will be used.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2016.
