Indiana and Kentucky have been working for years to establish a river crossing on I-69 between Evansville and Henderson, Kentucky. After careful evaluation of the funding options, I am in support of Central Corridor Alternative 1B, which would apply tolls only to the new interstate bridge of I-69 and not on the U.S. 41 bridge. This route is the most effective at the lowest total cost and has the least intrusive construction and environmental impact.
The interstate bridge will provide a valuable north and south path of travel for our community, and positively affect all industries in our area and beyond. This development could open up numerous economic opportunities, and improve access to our region’s attractions and businesses. To learn more about the I-69 Ohio River Crossing, click here.
Public comments about the plan will be accepted through Feb. 8. Comments can be submitted in public hearings, through the project’s contact page, by email or in person at the project office. Click here to read my recent letter submitted to the Ohio River Crossing Project Team
