Two open houses are scheduled late this month and early next month to discuss the short list of corridors for a new I-69 Ohio River Crossing (I-69 ORX).
A list of five broad corridors was presented in April. An extensive screening process has followed. The short list of corridors is expected later this month, and will be discussed further at the open houses.
