Meetings To Update Public On Last Leg I-69

INDIANAPOLIS -- A closer look at five preliminary routes for I-69 Section 6 will be laid out for people during this a series of public meetings this week says Lamar Holliday, public involvement specialist with INDOT.

"They will be able to look at these routes in greater detail than they have in the past couple months, the overpasses, underpasses, the access and footprint of the interstate." Said Holliday.

Holliday says there will also be discussions about comparative costs as well as the human and natural impact of any proposed routes. INDOT studied a number of additional routes after the public weighed in during the last comment period.

Section 6 is the last leg of the I-69 extension between Evansville and Indianapolis. Construction on Section 5 between Bloomington and Martinsville just got started and Section 4 from Crane to Bloomington was supposed to open before the end of the year but no date has been set.

This latest comment period will last until December 17th when the department will take the information along with other data and narrow down the proposed routes.

The meetings take place Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Locations can be found online in.gov/indot.
