Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce

I-66/65 Spur

Much like I-69 and the Audubon Parkway, the building of I-66 to within 25 miles of Owensboro presents an excellent chance to upgrade the Natcher Parkway to an Interstate spur. The question is whether the Natcher should be upgraded to an I-66 or I-65 spur.

I-65 is the third busiest north-south Interstate in the U.S. and already connects to the Natcher Parkway southwest of Bowling Green. While I-66 planning continues, perhaps the best idea is to convert the entire 65 miles of the Natcher Parkway to an Interstate spur between Owensboro and Bowling Green.

Again, the Chamber of Commerce has been working on this project. As with the Audubon Parkway/I-69 spur, the Chamber is working with Kentucky’s Congressional delegation to sponsor a bill that would designate the Natcher Parkway as a future Interstate spur.
