Project Overview

The I-69 Ohio River Crossing is a key final connection of I-69 between Evansville, Indiana and Henderson, Kentucky.

I-69 ORX is divided into two sections for construction. I-69 ORX Section 1 focuses on improvements in Henderson and extends from KY 425 to US 60. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is overseeing the Section 1 project.

I-69 ORX Section 2 is a bi-state project between Indiana and Kentucky and includes the new river crossing.

The I-69 Ohio River Crossing Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) was published September 16, 2021 and the Record of Decision (ROD) was issued.
