The Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce is asking Daviess County residents to weigh in on what they think is the best route for a new Interstate-69 bridge between Henderson and Evansville.

The chamber is conducting an online survey featuring the three options under consideration for the new bridge.

The Messenger-Inquirer reports the survey also asks respondents if they support the idea of a toll bridge.

Each of the three routes under consideration would cost close to one-and-a-half billion dollars. Each route includes six lanes of traffic, with at least four of them on the bridge.

The preferred route will be announced later this year, with a draft version of an environmental impact statement ready by the fall.

The deadline for filling out the online survey is March 16.
