This morning, under a light rain, the City of New Albany broke ground on the next segment of the Ohio River Greenway that will run from 8th-18th streets.
To date, more than nine (9) million public dollars have been invested into the New Albany segment alone, and over $32 million in public dollars have been invested into the total project that spans Jeffersonville, Clarksville, and New Albany. That public investment is a combination of federal and local tax dollars. These types of investments of public dollars into capital projects, like the Ohio River Greenway Project, help promote the quality of life and health for people of all ages.
At today's event, Mayor Gahan stressed the importance of continued investment in projects like the Ohio River Greenway that aim to improve quality of life. He was joined by leaders from the City of Jeffersonville, Town of Clarksville, Indiana Department of Transportation, Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County, Ohio River Greenway Commission, and Friends of the Ohio River Greenway to show their support of the project.
