Local officials from Indiana and Kentucky are teaming up to push for construction of an Interstate 69 bridge over the Ohio River near Evansville within the next eight years.
Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke tells the Evansville Courier & Press the group must be aggressive in pushing the project.
A nearly 100-mile section of I-69 north from Evansville to Bloomington should all be open next year. In Kentucky, parks of the Western Kentucky Parkway and Interstate 24 are now designated as I-69.
Henderson Chamber of Commerce president Brad Schneider says advocates for the bridge must talk about it being inevitable.
