Just opened: Heavy Haul Transportation Corridor just for Semi-Trucks

A roadway explicitly designed for semi-trucks and trailers opened in southern Indiana.


The two-lane road, known as the Heavy Haul Transportation Corridor (HHTC), runs between River Ridge Commerce Center and the Port of Indiana and is designed to withstand vehicles weighing up to 134,000 lbs.


According to officials, the new corridor is suitable for cars and heavy trucks but is "more direct" and "safer" for heavy vehicles.

"They are not dealing with the day-to-day traffic as much. It is also safer for local travelers. They do not have to deal with the large trucks and all that could bring," said Natalie Garrett, a spokeswoman for INDOT.

This highly anticipated road began back in 2019, and it has cost more than 14 million dollars so far.

The mayor of Jeffersonville, Mike Moore, said back in the day that the purpose of this "heavy road" would be to pull "most semi-trucks" off of Highway 62 and make the roundabout in the area safer.
The Heavy Haul Transportation Corridor is fully open now.
