Two open houses will be held next week, one in Evansville and one in Henderson, Kentucky, to introduce members of the community to the I-69 Ohio River Crossing (I-69 ORX) Project. Anyone who has an interest in the project is encouraged to attend.
The open houses will include an overview of the project, a discussion of broad alternatives identified to date and a timeline for the I-69 ORX Project. In addition to sharing information with the public, the Project Team wants input from members of the community. Surveys and comment cards will be provided.

A 35 mph speed limit and shifting, narrow lanes will allow two lanes to remain open in each direction between Evansville and Henderson.
