The “I-69: Our Road to the Future” conference will provide the most up-to-date information on local, state, and federal construction projects, planning considerations, governmental perspectives, and economic development strategies associated with the advance of the Interstate 69 corridor through western Kentucky. Success stories from communities already benefitting from the highway will encourage counties along the designated route to begin now to formulate strategies to maximize the benefits expected as the Interstate nears completion.
The conference will feature speakers from the Kentucky Transportation and Economic Development cabinets, contractors, high ranking state and federal officials close to the project, and guest panelists from other I-69 states. A reception from 4-5 p.m. will allow attendees a chance to network at the end of the day.
Attendees from all I-69 intersecting and border counties will include mayors, judge executives, magistrates, city council members, and representatives of Chambers of Commerce, Economic Development, Tourism, Planning and Zoning Commissions as well as businesses including freight haulers, road contractors and construction companies.
Tickets are $20 per person and must be reserved and purchased prior to the event. No payments will be accepted at the door.
A light breakfast will be available at 8:30 a.m. and lunch will be served at noon; this is included with the cost of your ticket.
