INDOT was unable to understand what I was asking, but according to KYTC, both states have discussed signing it as I-265 and just haven't moved on it yet because it would be expensive.
Are they insisting on the "replace whole sign and supports" method of updating things?  I wouldn't think taking down the old shields and putting in the new would be that expensive.

Maybe it has to do with the MUTCD in relation to the KY 841 NB Exits (see here from I-71 SB)...

The sign for the KY 841 NB exit specifically.  I think that there may be issues with keeping KY 841 and the TOLL BRIDGE banner in regard to adding I-265.  Maybe that requires a complete sign replacement IMO.

So they spent $241 million to build the bridge and road, but can't find a couple hundred thousand to sign it?

So... patch over KY 841 then. Doesn't need to be signed there anymore if 265 is.

I dunno, this whole thing seems like it's just moving at government bureaucracy speed and there's really no rationale beyond that. They'll get around to it, but it's not a priority.

I was there 2 weeks ago and signs at I-71 had not changed, so I'll wait for photos.
Clinched:

Of course, I only posted as a heads up that this might (finally) be happening.

As of today there's no change as signed from northbound I-65.
