SEBREE, Ky. (AP) - Another contract has been awarded for work in western Kentucky necessary to enable part of the Breathitt-Pennyrile Parkway to be designated as Interstate 69.

Gov. Steve Beshear’s office says the contract was awarded to Dumey Contracting on a low bid of $10 million. The work is expected to be completed Oct. 1, 2015.

It involves reconstruction of the Kentucky 56 interchange near Sebree.

I-69 in Kentucky will run north to south from the Ohio River at Henderson to the Tennessee border at Fulton. Improvements are also required to part of two other Kentucky roads: Ford-Western Kentucky and Carroll-Purchase parkways.

So far, 55 miles of the corridor are complete, from around Nortonville to the interchange of I-24 and the Carroll-Purchase Parkway near Gilbertsville.
