Project officials expect to break ground in early 2022 on Section 1 of the I-69 Ohio River Crossing (I-69 ORX) project in Henderson, Kentucky.
Section 1 focuses on improvements in Henderson and extends from KY 425 to U.S. 60. Construction is expected to begin in early 2022 and continue through 2025, according to a press release.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is overseeing work on Section 1. KYTC started working with contracting teams earlier this year. This week marks the official request for technical and price proposals from the three short-listed proposers. Proposals will be due to KYTC by November 15. The apparent Best Value design-build team is expected to be announced Dec. 15, with a contract expected to be awarded by the end of the year.
