Public sessions set on plans for I-69 extension’s final leg

MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — State officials have set three public meetings in central Indiana for updates on plans for the final leg of the Interstate 69 extension project that’s been under construction since 2008.

The Indiana Department of Transportation expects significant construction to start next year upgrading the current Indiana 37 corridor between Martinsville on I-465 on the southwest side of Indianapolis. The 26-mile section is expected to cost $1.5 billion and be open by late 2024.

The public meetings are Monday at Martinsville High School, Tuesday at Center Grove High School near Greenwood and Thursday at Perry Meridian High School in Indianapolis. Each session starts at 5:30 p.m.

Officials say residents can participate in surveys on project aesthetics such as pedestrian walkways and lighting.

The I-69 extension currently runs from Evansville to Martinsville.
