CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Tourism officials have started a $90,000 advertising campaign to let people know that traffic into southern Indiana isn’t bad during non-peak hours.

Executive Director Jim Epperson of the tourism bureau for Clark and Floyd counties tells The (Louisville, Kentucky) Courier-Journal (https://cjky.it/1Kh09nY ) an urban myth has sprung up that getting in and out of southern Indiana is difficult because of construction on the Kennedy Bridge, where Interstate 65 traffic is reduced from three lanes to two in both directions.

Epperson says travel times are virtually the same as pre-construction days except for during rush hours. Tourism officials say they will use billboards to get the word out that the project called the “Big Squeeze” isn’t as bad as some fear.
