State awards contract for Pennyrile reconstruction

HENDERSON, Ky. - The state has awarded a $29 million contract to reconstruct the Pennyrile Parkway interchange with the Western Kentucky Parkway/Interstate 69 near Madisonville.
According to The Gleaner, the project will convert the existing reduced-speed cloverleaf interchange to a "full flow" connection interchange.
Officials say it's one of the biggest construction projects related to upgrade portions of three state parkways - the Pennyrile, Western Kentucky and Purchase parkways - to interstate standards so they can be re-designated as I-69 from Henderson to Fulton on the Tennessee state line.
