I-69 ORX Section 1 includes numerous roadway and bridge improvements. Nine new bridges are being built and seven bridges are being rehabilitated as part of the new I-69 in Henderson. New US 41 overpass bridges are being built at KY 351. The new bridges are being built at the same location, with the bridges remaining open to traffic throughout construction.
