Jeffersonville, often called “Jeff” by locals, is the county seat of Clark County in Southern Indiana, located on the opposite side of the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky and connected to Louisville by the Kennedy, Lincoln, and Lewis and Clark Bridges. It has a population of 30,000, but current annexation plans could increase it’s population to about 45,000.

Interstate 65, which crosses the river on the John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln Bridges (respectively carrying southbound and northbound traffic), connects Jeffersonville with Louisville and other points between Chicago and Mobile, AL. Indiana 265, soon to be redesignated as Interstate 265 with the recent opening of the Lewis and Clark Bridge to Kentucky, offers a bypass around the northern end of the city. Note that the 65 and 265 crossings are tolled, with all-electronic tolling (no toll booths). The lowest toll rates are available only to drivers with transponders issued either by the local tolling authority or the multi-state E-ZPass consortium.

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.
