Jeffersonville (Indiana)

Spring Street

Jeffersonville, often called "Jeff" by locals, is the county seat of Clark County in Southern Indiana, located on the opposite side of the Kennedy Bridge (carrying I-65) from Louisville along the Ohio River. It has a population of 30,000, but current annexation plans could increase it's population to about 45,000.

Get in

Interstate 65 connects Jeffersonville with Louisville and other points between Chicago and Mobile, AL. Indiana 265 (soon to be Interstate 265 when a new bridge to Kentucky is opened in the 2010's) offers a bypass around the northern end of the city.

Small aircraft can fly into Clark County Airport, five miles north in Sellersburg. Passenger jet service is available at Louisville International Airport, eight miles south off of I-65 and I-264.

Amtrak discontinued service to Jeffersonville and Louisville in 2003.

Get around

Veterans Pkwy. connects the north side of Jeffersonville with the retail district of Clarksville.

By phone

Most telephone numbers in Jeffersonville, as well as the rest of the Indiana side of the Louisville area, consist of +1 812 plus a seven-digit number, but the entire 812 area is now served by an overlay complex of two area codes, with +1 930 as the second. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 812 before these if no area code is indicated.

Go next

Clarksville, located on the other side of I-65 offers most of the areas shopping and dining. It also has the Falls of the Ohio State Park. Louisville offers major city choices for entertainment and tourist activities.
