Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul were both in Henderson on Monday morning for separate events before making other stops in Western Kentucky.
"They're both good people. They've both been good for Henderson and to Henderson," Mayor Austin says.
"Really happy that I got an opportunity to be helpful. As I mentioned in my remarks, it's actually no longer possible to do Congressionally directed funding like this, so the community should really be congratulated for have the foresight to get this project together at a time when we could afford to do it," McConnell tells 14 News.
Mayor Austin says discussions with both senators on Monday focused on how to fund the proposed I-69 Ohio River Bridge Project.
He called this a historic day for Henderson.
