Elevated I-69 Route West of Evansville Under Consideration
Posted: 19-Feb-2002 7:22PM CST

A new proposal to route I-69 west of Evansville between I-64 and Kentucky is being considered. The new proposal would route I-69 west of Evansville and build an elevated freeway through the Ohio River flood plain in southwestern Vanderburgh County, Indiana. There are currently nine or ten routes under consideration; however, the number of proposals should be narrowed to three or four before public meetings this summer. All nine routes face potential problems with archaeological sites, wetlands, and proposed parks and wildlife refuges in Kentucky.
