JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) – Support from Mayor Mike Moore to ease traffic congestion on a busy road means hundreds of thousands of dollars getting pulled from an airport expansion agreement.

Moore vetoed an agreement that would give $400,000 to help pay for plans to expand Clark County Regional Airport.

Moore says it’s about setting priorities for the people who live in Jeffersonville and he says the money would be better spent widening Holmans Lane from Veterans Parkway to Allison Lane.

Part of the funding for the $8 million project would come from the state. Moore proposes the rest would be paid for with a special taxing district.
