Leaders in Evansville say they expect construction to begin on a new Interstate 69 bridge over the Ohio River between Indiana and Kentucky.

The biggest step in the project would be federal approval of a route for the new bridge, that would cost nearly 1.5 billion dollars.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has included that bridge route decision among his administration's 2021 goals.

Funding sources remain uncertain for the bridge project, although Henderson County Judge-Executive Brad Schneider says, the preliminary work for its construction is already underway.
