You seeing this on a map somewhere? Might be a typo somewhere...

In the SPRS listings. Same for 3215 in Lawrence and Owen Counties - and both of those are signed:
*Lawrence County
*Owen County

While trying to find info on the Natcher Parkway extension east from Interstate 65 to U.S. 231, I stumbled across this chamber of commerce site advocating numbering the parkway to Interstate 165:


--- Quote ---Much like I-69 and the Audubon Parkway, the building of I-66 to within 25 miles of Owensboro presents an excellent chance to upgrade the Natcher Parkway to an Interstate spur. The question is whether the Natcher should be upgraded to an I-66 or I-65 spur.

I-65 is the third busiest north-south Interstate in the U.S. and already connects to the Natcher Parkway southwest of Bowling Green. While I-66 planning continues, perhaps the best idea is to convert the entire 65 miles of the Natcher Parkway to an Interstate spur between Owensboro and Bowling Green.

Again, the Chamber of Commerce has been working on this project. As with the Audubon Parkway/I-69 spur, the Chamber is working with Kentucky’s Congressional delegation to sponsor a bill that would designate the Natcher Parkway as a future Interstate spur.

Meanwhile, it is still hard to find info on the Natcher Parkway extension from Interstate 65 east to U.S. 231. Found this article from last summer:

Interchange construction means blocks


--- Quote ---Meanwhile, work is continuing on the 2.5-mile extension of the parkway in the Plano area.

Many people apparently thought Natcher was going over Plano Road.

“But actually Plano Road will go up and over the Natcher,” Meredith said, noting the crews are starting to bring up the embankments on both sides of the bridge.

That bridge will have a single stop point for the interchange [SPUI].

--- Quote ---Carter said traffic has already been switched onto a new section of about 1,500 feet of Dye Ford Road that changed where the road intersects with Scottsville Road [US 231].

Carter said crews have already set the beams for the Plano Road bridge and should begin setting the forms to pour the concrete bridge deck in the next month.

Here's what I could get from 2010 NAIP aerials: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=36.9096&lon=-86.41786&zoom=15&layers=M
I suspect the ramp to I-65 north will be replaced by a loop, but couldn't see any definite evidence of grading.

Hey HB, do you know what's up with this new highway being built parallel to US-60/231 just East of Owensboro? http://g.co/maps/y3ydy  Are they going to be building a new bypass to connect to the Wendel Ford Bypass utilizing this new section of highway?

I also noticed that they have built a new road that intersects the bypass at-grade with traffic lights (http://g.co/maps/jqwdp).  I also looked at the Davis SPRS map and noticed it's got the designation of KY-603.  Do you know if the route is posted in the field, or is it hidden?  This PDF mentions it got it's number on September 12th of this year (Page 12).
