The I-69 Ohio River Crossing (I-69 ORX) Project Team is gathering feedback from residents and business owners regarding the preliminary alternatives for a new I-69 bridge and interstate connections.

West Alternative 1, West Alternative 2 and Central Alternative 1 are identified as providing the best opportunity to be financially feasible and address the purpose and need of the project. The purpose and need is to complete the I-69 connection between Indiana and Kentucky, improve long-term cross-river mobility, reduce congestion and delay, and improve safety.

MTP 2045 Transportation Priorities Survey

The Evansville MPO is developing an update to the region's Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP); a long range planning document that identifies transportation deficiencies, policies, strategies and projects over the next twenty plus years.

To inform the Metropolitan Transportation Plan update, the EMPO is seeking public input on transportation priorities for the region. Voicing your opinion on our future transportation system will take no more than 5-10 minutes and will help set the course for future improvements. You may complete the survey online (Español), or in person at the MPO office.
