DEIS Public Hearings - Jan. 2019The I-69 ORX Project Team hosted two public hearings in early January 2019. Community members and leaders were invited to have their comments made part of official record.
Preferred Alternatives: I-69 ORX - Dec. 2018The Project Team has identified two alternatives for the I-69 Ohio River Crossing, Central Alternative 1A and Central Alternative 1B. Tolling options are the only differences between the two.
Financial Feasibility: I-69 ORX - Dec. 2018The ORX Project Team has been working diligent to identify the best financial options for completing the connection and building a bridge between Henderson, KY and Evansville, IN.
DEIS Overview: I-69 ORX - Dec. 2018The DEIS, or Draft Environmental Impact Statement was released in December 2019. Watch to learn more about the DEIS, the preferred alternatives and more.
Central Alternatives 1A and 1B: Preferred Route for I-69 ORX - Dec. 2018The Central Alternative is the preferred route for the proposed I-69 crossing.
The DEIS identifies two preferred alternatives with different tolling options. Central Alternative 1A would toll both the I-69 bridge and the remaining US 41 bridge. Central Alternative 1B would toll only the I-69 bridge.
