Clark County Government Building

Clark County is located in southern Indiana and named after William Clark. William Clark was an American explorer, soldier, Indian agent, and territorial governor. Along with Meriwether Lewis, Clark helped lead the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803 to 1806 across the Louisiana Purchase to the Pacific Ocean, and claimed the Pacific Northwest for the United States. Clark County was established in 1801 and is strategically positioned across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky.

Approximately 2 million tons of cargo moves through the Ports of Indiana - Jeffersonville annually.   

River Ridge Commerce CenterClark County has diversified its economic base and continues to expand in exciting new directions. River Ridge Commerce Center© is an example of a new wave of economic redevelopment taking place in the county. The River Ridge Commerce Center© was formerly the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant. The plant manufactured gunpowder during World War II, the Korean War, and the Viet Nam War. Congress declared the property surplus to its needs in 1998 and authorized 6000 acres of the property to be conveyed to the River Ridge Development Authority for economic development and other parts of the property to be used for expansion of the Charlestown State Park.

SR 60 Bridge Project To Begin In April

Indiana Department of Transportation officials met with contractor representatives, utility coordinators and design engineers this morning (MARCH 9) at Seymour District offices to review plans for a $1,757,000 bridge replacement project on State Road 60 in Clark County.  

Louisville Paving Company, Indiana’s contractor, is charged with removing and replacing the 3-span S.R. 60 bridge spanning Persimmon Run—located 4.93 miles west of S.R. 111, just west of Broom Hill Road—and installation of a 14 X 9-foot concrete box culvert measuring 72 feet in width at a tributary to Muddy Fork Creek—located 1.5 miles east of Bordon.  Both structures are in Wood Township.  

The Louisville contractor plans to begin work to replace the box culvert in mid- to late-April.  Two-way traffic on S.R. 60 will be shifted to lane and shoulder areas allowing installation to occur one-half at a time.  This operation should be completed within 60 days. 

Replacement of S.R. 60’s 85-foot-long bridge over Persimmon Run is expected to require 120 days for construction. 

S.R. 60 has a traffic count of 10,750 vehicles per day at the culvert and 9,960 at the bridge.
