JEFFERSONVILLE, IN – Mayor Mike Moore is still waiting for crews to finish the Indiana side of the Big Four Bridge, but said the city plans to place 24 security cameras near the ramp.

"We've spent a lot money, both Indiana and Kentucky, making this a project that will promote tourism and promote some economic growth over here and over in Louisville, but if people don't feel safe they won't utilize it,” Moore said.

The cameras cost the city $90,000 dollars from the redevelopment fund.  They will be placed both the ramp itself and in areas to keep an on the nearby park.

Moore said they are still trying to figure out who will monitor the cameras.  The city does plan to have police officers at the base of the ramp 24/7 for the first few months, and then maintain a strong police presence in the area.
