Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce

I-69 Spur

Interstate 69 will intersect the Audubon Parkway between Owensboro and Henderson at approximately the three-mile marker. This provides an excellent opportunity to upgrade the Audubon to an I-69 spur and bring an Interstate directly to Owensboro!

The Chamber of Commerce has been working diligently to make this reality. The Chamber’s Transportation Committee has moved this project up the various transportation-related priority lists. More recently, the Chamber has been working with Kentucky’s Congressional delegation to sponsor a bill that would designate both the Audubon and Natcher parkways as future Interstate spurs. If this becomes reality, various improvements to both parkways (median width, clear zones, bridge overpass heights and exit on/off ramps) could be done over several years.

Upgrading the Audubon and Natcher parkways to spurs is perhaps the best opportunity to ever bring the nation’s Interstate system to Owensboro and Daviess County. The ramifications for business growth and economic development are very significant.
