FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - State transportation officials say interstate signs will be going up along another 41 miles of the new Interstate 69 corridor in western Kentucky by year’s end.

The state Transportation Cabinet says a $3.2 million contract to construct and place signs in Henderson, Hopkins and Webster counties has been awarded to Eden Fence Inc.

The contract will extend I-69 signs along the former Edward T. Breathitt-Pennyrile Parkway from mile point 35.6 in Hopkins County to the Henderson Bypass at Exit 76. Officials say the contract includes updating signs along U.S. 41 and other nearby highways that now direct traffic to the parkway.

The new signs are scheduled to be in place by Oct. 15.

Once complete, I-69 in Kentucky will run from the Tennessee line at Fulton to the Ohio River at Henderson.
