Paul Wheatley of the River Ridge Commerce Center tells The Courier-Journal that Amazon officials anticipate opening the center by the Oct. 1 construction deadline. That would allow it to process orders for the Christmas season with perhaps hundreds of seasonal workers.

Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore tells WDRB-TV that the city has been talking with other companies about moving to the industrial park on the site of the former Indiana Army Ammunition Plant.

Amazon currently has four distribution centers in central Indiana.
