Plans for I-69 to go through Evansville and Henderson have been in the works for years. Now, Owensboro Mayor Ron Payne is suggesting a different route.
"It's tremendously important to Evansville. Not just to Evansville, but to Henderson, Madisonville and Hopkinsville communities in western Kentucky and southwest Indiana have been planning for the I-69 corridor for decades," Winnecke says.
Henderson mayor Steve Austin says Payne's plan is just illogical.
14 News reached out to Payne on Monday, but he wasn't available for a comment.
There's still no word yet on where the possible bridge could be built.
