I-69 Ohio River Bridge

(1/241) > >>

truejd:
Does anyone know the status of the portion of I-69 that would connect Henderson, KY and Evansville, IN?  I've read about plans for it in the local newspapers around there but haven't heard anything in a while.

ShawnP:
It's gonna have to be a toll bridge neither Indiana or Kentucky have the money to build it especially with the Louisville Bridges Project eating up tons of money.

Revive 755:
There's also the Brent Spence Bridge (I-71/75) replacement project that I-69 will/is competing against.  I would say that the I-69 bridge is the lowest priority of the major Ohio River bridge projects in Kentucky - but maybe higher over any new bridge near Wickliffe.

ShawnP:
Was reading in the latest STIP for Kentucky today that Kentucky must keep the feds abreast of the big dog projects in Kentucky aka Louisville Bridges Project, Brent Spence Bridge, I-69 and I-66. Of those I see the first two as definite in the next ten years and a maybe on the third and dead on the forth. Kentucky should use money intended for I-66 on I-65 (six laning and Jersey's) between Bowling Green and Elizabethtown which is very dangerous and scene of some horrific traffic accidents recently.

Seemed like I-65 was six lanes for most of the way from Nashville to Louisville when I drove it back in December.
