Indiana to build tunnel in Kentucky

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana will soon be building a multi-million dollar tunnel -- in Kentucky.

The $255-million tunnel will preserve 11 acres of woodlands in the path of one of the new Ohio River bridges.

The tunnel is required because the site is on the National Register of Historic Places.

But opponents call it a taxpayer boondoggle.

Clarksville's Town Council President says many residents believe the property "has almost no historic significance."

The tunnel is part of the I-265 bridge that will be built in 2013.
