    Interstate 69 and Support for C-LINK

    In November 2015, the section of the former Edward T. Breathitt/Pennyrile Parkway through Hopkins County was officially rebranded as Interstate 69. Eventually, Interstate 69 will be a Canada-to-Mexico thoroughfare that will increase economic development and create thousands of jobs for the states and communities along the corridor.

    The Hopkins County Regional Chamber of Commerce actively lobbies to support the continued development of the I-69 corridor through western Kentucky. We belong to a 12-Chamber alliance known as Chamber Leadership Initiatives for Northwest Kentucky, or C-LINK, which encourages the funding and completion of I-69.
