ORCEVANSVILLE, Ind. (7/16/17) — Two open houses are scheduled later this month and early next month to discuss the short list of alternatives for a new I-69 Ohio River Crossing connecting Evansville, Indiana and Henderson.

A list of five broad corridors was presented in April. An extensive screening process has followed. The short list of alternatives is expected later this month, and will be discussed further at the open houses, I-69 Ohio River Crossing Spokeswoman Mindy Peterson announced.

Evansville Open House/Henderson Open House
Monday, July 31, 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 1, 5-7 p.m.
Crescent Room at Milestones Henderson Community College
621 S. Cullen Ave. Preston Fine Arts Center
2660 S. Green St.

Each open house will include a presentation at 6:00 p.m. The rest of the event is an open house format, with several information stations.

Attendees will have a chance to talk one-on-one with leaders of the I-69 ORX team, hear more about the project and ask questions. Comment cards will be provided.

Henderson Area Rapid Transit will run a special, free route for the Henderson open house. Riders will depart from the central dispatch point at Third and Main streets at 5:00 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. Buses will transport participants back to Third and Main at 7 p.m.

Public transportation to the Evansville open house is available via Metropolitan Evansville Transit System (METS), through available connections.

The I-69 ORX team will continue detailed data collection and engineering analyses, with a preferred alternative expected by fall of 2018 and a Record of Decision  expected by late 2019.

Indiana and Kentucky are committed to improving the I-69 corridor by creating an I-69 Ohio River Crossing between Evansville and Henderson. The states have reinitiated a study of the I-69 corridor, required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The study is expected to take two to three years, and will identify the route, bridge location and financing solutions for a new I-69 Ohio River Crossing.
