Homeless Camps Must Move
JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) - The project managers for a new Ohio River bridge between Indiana and Kentucky say makeshift homeless camps in the new span's path need to be moved soon.
Indiana and Kentucky officials told members of the Jeffersonville-Clarksville Homelessness Task Force on Thursday that the homeless residents need to be moved so crews can clear land for the new bridge's ramps.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet project manager Andy Barber told the panel it's unsafe for people to be in the construction zone without protective equipment.
The Louisville Courier-Journal of Ky., reports Walsh Construction project manager Blake Morris told task force members crews planned to begin clearing land near one camp area late this week.
Task force member the Rev. Jim Moon says homeless advocates "need a little more time than that."
