A new section of Highway 60 in Owensboro could be ready months sooner than scheduled.

Kentucky Transportation officials say the extension project will be ready for traffic as soon as September. Right now, you can drive east on the new section to the Pleasant Valley Rd. exit.

Officials say the new four lane highway will improve connectivity between Owensboro and the Natcher Bridge. Construction will continue through next year.
