Henderson is now on an Interstate: Gov. Steve Beshear just rebranded Pennyrile Parkway as I-69 at a ceremony here.
“Creating an I-69 corridor through the Pennyrile and Jackson Purchase has been a long, long quest requiring a lot of hard work by a lot of people. And today we can take enormous satisfaction from knowing that we have reached a true milestone,” Beshear said.
I-69 now extends from the Kentucky 425/South Bypass just south of Henderson to the existing I-69 near Nortonville in southern Hopkins County.
When complete, the I-69 corridor will run north to south from the Ohio River at Henderson to the Tennessee line at Fulton – approximately 155 miles. In addition to the Pennyrile Parkway, the corridor includes sections of I-24, the Wendell H. Ford Western Kentucky Parkway and the Julian M. Carroll Purchase Parkway.
