C-LINK: Kyndle Connects to the Region
Kyndle is always thinking big, and its membership in Chamber Leadership Initiatives for Northwestern Kentucky, or C-LINK, proves it. C-LINK includes 12 chambers of commerce in 10 counties. Counties represented include Breckinridge, Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, Hopkins, McLean, Muhlenberg, Ohio, Union and Webster. C-LINK advocates for the prosperity and quality of life of the more than 3,000 chamber members and 300,000 residents in those counties.
At the top of C-LINK’s current agenda is maintaining the momentum toward the total completion of Interstate 69 from a new Ohio River bridge in Henderson County to where the interstate leaves the commonwealth in far southwestern Kentucky.
In a related venture, Kyndle and the Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Indiana have linked arms across the Ohio River to create BridgeLink, a non-profit group whose sole focus is to advocate for building the new Interstate 69 bridge between Henderson and Evansville, Ind.
BridgeLink envisions the new tolled I-69 bridge to be complete and open to traffic by 2020. The bi-state group also supports preserving a non-tolled route across the Ohio River for local commuters.
The new Interstate 69 bridge, along with work already completed or underway in Kentucky and Indiana, will create a seamless, safe international trade corridor through the heart of the nation eventually connecting Canada, the United States and Mexico.
