    You're not going to try to convince us again that OOSers make Kentucky a great place are you?

    IN hasn't figured out how to pay for the last section from Bloomington to Indy yet, so it won't be done by 2014.

    Why would someone living in western Kentucky want to go to Indiana? :D

    Doesn't the pennyrile pkwy already go down through there? How does calling it an interstate change things?

    I agree with smash how does just changing the designation of a highway make it better? You got the pennyrile, west ky , I24 and the purchase are all now part of I69. They have always been here so whats changed other than the name?

    You have no direct interstate route from western Ky to Indy. When this is done all the way it will cut off time and miles between Evansville, In and Indy rather then go up hwy 41 to Terre Haute then east on I-70 to Indy, or up thru Louisville on I-65. I for one would use this route as I make a few trips each year to Indy rather then go thru Louisville.

    As far as the Ky parts go nothing will change except at some time a new bridge across the Ohio river may be built between In & Ky

    Ahh, now I see. You get to avoid Louisville. That does make it better.

    What is there in Indianapolis?

  12. Poilitcal reasoning my friends. all these parkways have been mostly maintained by state funds calling it an interstate hwy now brings about more federal funding.

    Ok. Not much of a car racing fan. More of a demo derby guy and sure not a Colts fan.

    What is closer to say Madisonville, Nashville or Indy?
