FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky transportation officials say a contract has been awarded for more improvements needed to upgrade the Pennyrile Parkway to interstate highway standards.

The project involves reconstruction of the interchange at Mortons Gap in western Kentucky. Officials say Road Builders LLC was awarded the contract on a low bid of just over $14 million. The project has a completion date of June 1, 2017.

Officials say the interchange work is part of a larger project to upgrade a portion of the Pennyrile Parkway to become part of Interstate 69.

When the corridor is complete, I-69 will run north to south from the Ohio River at Henderson to the Tennessee line at Fulton.

In addition to the Pennyrile Parkway, the corridor includes sections of I-24 and the Western Kentucky and Purchase parkways.
