An open house for everyone in the community to take a look at the newly proposed US 41 Corridor. 

As the construction of I-69 is near completion, the Henderson City and County planning commission is now putting its focus on the US-60 Henderson Cloverleaf interchange, also known as the strip. 

"There are all kinds of ideas that we're looking at right now and it's kind of exciting, to be honest," said Brad Staton, a Henderson Commissioner. "just to take a look at what it can be and how it's going to change along with the rest of the city and be an improvement for Henderson in the future." 

The goal of this revamp is to provide better traffic flow in the area, be safer for pedestrians and make it more aesthetically pleasing. Creating a better quality of life and becoming more family-friendly. 

The plan includes new apartment buildings, a 4-way intersection, and new businesses in the area. 

"If you look at the crowd here, it includes many of the people who have businesses on the strip." said Staton. "so as this affects them, they will have a say and they'll have some input on how we can make improvements."

It's a change several businesses in the area look forward to seeing in the future. 

"Pretty much excited to see what they have planned and that the fact they are actually getting the community involved to see what it is that we want and what the community wants," said Ashonda Carter, A shift leader at Tumbleweed Mex Grill and Margarita Bar. "I definitely am ready to see some different changes, different scenery."

Those in attendance did share feedback and unofficially voted on the plans.

"We're still in the phase where we're talking and dreaming and visioning what this place is going to look like in the future," said Staton. "we've still got quite some time and that's why we're doing it now because we want to get ahead of this."

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
