There's a project in Kentucky's six-year plan to rebuild the interchange yet again, with a new bridge to be built to the south of the existing one.

You bring something to light that just occurred to me.  The Tennessee Ernie Ford complex will be built along TN 222, and the Kentucky Ford complex will be built along KY 222.  Very odd coincidence!

FIFY.  :-D :-D :-D

what is it with AARoads members from Kentucky bringing up people named Ernie at inappropriate times

What’s wrong with Ernie?

That seems wasteful to me. The state has had an option (or owned outright) the land where the Ford facility is going to be built for years. They should have included the rebuild of the KY 222 interchange as part of the original I-65 widening.

It doesn’t look like the TN 222 interchange was rebuilt, if Google street view is any indication. The bridge looks old.

Funnily enough something similar happened to another I-240, the one in Oklahoma City—it once was a ¾ beltway around OKC, but the west and north legs got renumbered to I-44 in 1982.

Speaking of that, I-240's designation will be extended to become a full beltway following:
I-44
SR 152
John Kilpatrick Tpk.
I-44 (I-35 to Kickapoo Tpk. section)
Kickapoo Tpk.
I-40
It's a continuous route, but it requires multiple overlaps with the state highway system.

Yes I believe the bridge is original, but it’s always looked decent, meaning that it may have been reconditioned at some point in time.  Probably in the 80’s because I don’t remember it being done.  And the ramps at that I-40 diamond interchange are much longer than you would expect to see on a circa early-60’s Tennessee freeway.  Now I’m wondering if the ramps were added in the 80’s at the same time the bridge was theoretically reconditioned…

I know, I watched the Transportation Commission approve it live (and posted here less than a minute after the vote). :P But it wasn't relevant to the point I was making.
