Under a gleaming October sky, Gov. Steve Beshear in essence saluted the red, white and blue on Tuesday afternoon. It wasn’t the American flag — he was talking about the new Interstate 69 signs that have been placed along 55 miles of the Western Kentucky Parkway and Interstate 24 from just south of Madisonville to just past Eddyville. It marks the first mileage in the state to bear the I-69 shield, and it will soon show up on maps and GPS devices.
