Eminent domain ruling is upheld

JEFFERSONVILLE — The Indiana Supreme Court has affirmed a Court of Appeals ruling that Clark County will have to pay more than $900,000 to the estate of a woman whose property was taken by eminent domain for an airport runway expansion.

Large trucks banned from Indy ramps

INDIANAPOLIS — The state is temporarily banning large trucks from using a pair of off-ramps from Interstates 65 and 70 in downtown Indianapolis until a major road repair project is finished next month.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says the reason for the ban is a large increase in the number of trucks using the I-65 southbound and I-70 westbound ramps because of the road work, causing safety concerns.

INDOT says the tractor trailers can’t make the turns required downtown without driving over curbs or into other traffic lanes.
