It’s going to take about eight years for work on Section 6 of the I-69 in Indiana, but funding has only been allocated through to 2022.
News on the update came out of Indiana Chamber’s I-69 + P3 Summit recently. The project includes a 26-mile stretch of highway running from Martinsville to Indianapolis, but some work details have yet to be ironed out, says an article in Newsbug. Only one designer has been chosen for five segments of highway — four more have yet to be named.
Construction is expected to begin either late in 2019 or early in 2020. The entire project is expected to cost about $1.5 billion with $500 million currently allocated for the project.
“There’s still funding for the project,” said James Earl, Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) project manager. “We just have to determine where the money is coming from.”
