The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has paid $625,000 dollars to a highway contractor over a delay in a Jessamine County road project and agreed to pay the contractor another $850,000 if work doesn't start by May 1.
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin joined Indiana Gov. Mike Pence in Henderson Thursday to sign a memorandum of understanding initiating the study and design of a new Ohio River bridge for Interstate 69, connecting Henderson to Evansville, Ind.
Update: The contractor working on a portion of the I-69 corridor in western Kentucky was unable to install a temporary barrier last night as planned on the eastbound lane of I-24 in Marshall county Tuesday due to weather. The installation is now scheduled for 8 p.m. June 1.
