Governor: "There's no place in Kentucky that has more going on right now"

"There's no place in Kentucky that has more going on right now than you all," Gov. Steve Beshear told a crowd gathered in Ownsboro on Wednesday to watch him break ground for the first 2.3 miles of the long-awaited bypass extension that will create the new I-64/ I-65 Corridor.

He was talking about the $120 million worth of construction planned for downtown Owensboro which includes a new hotel and convention center, a new $385 million hospital planned between Daniels Lane and Pleasant Valley Road, the emerging plant biotech cluster being created around Kentucky BioProcessing and the newly planned Centre for Business and Research, recent expansions at US Bank, Unilever, Swedish Match, and Sazerac, the soon-to-be-completed Western Kentucky University-Owensboro Campus as well as the $37.6 million road project.

Thank you Governor for your investments in our region! Thank you for recognizing our willingness to invest in ourselves!
