JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Dozens of homeless people are being driven from their makeshift camps in southern Indiana because of construction of a new bridge over the Ohio River.
Fifty-one Michael McKell tells the Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky. (http://cjky.it/19ZQgKe ) that he and about a dozen other homeless people who live under the Interstate 65 overpass don't know where they're going to go.
The new downtown bridge, connecting Louisville and Jeffersonville, Ind., will go up alongside the existing Kennedy Bridge on I-65. The campers will have to leave when the area is closed for construction beginning next month.
Jesus Cares director Paul Stensrud says he's had to move his agency's meal distribution site north, deeper into Jeffersonville, which has only one homeless shelter.
