Kentucky's Transportation Secretary says there are no plans to re-route Interstate-69 across the Natcher Bridge and then through Owensboro. Mike Hancock also says a proposal being pushed by Owensboro Mayor Ron Payne would be "costly and difficult to implement." Payne met with Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke. Winnecke says that under Payne's plan, Evansville would become a cul-de-sac, without a new bridge to Henderson. He says Payne's proposal wound not be in the best interests of Southwestern Indiana, Henderson, or Madisonville.
