Surveying and other preliminary work has begun on Section 5 of I-69, marking the beginning of the next leg of the interstate project connecting Indianapolis to Evansville.

According to INDOT, More than 100 “kitchen table meetings” have been held thus far to prepare landowners for survey work and land acquisition. INDOT’s kitchen table meetings have been recognized as a successful practice by the Federal Highway Administration, the Institute of Transportation Engineers and the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials.

In a likewise fashion, Sever Storey has also begun its efforts to educate landowners on the project and what to expect moving forward.

Section 5, which runs from Bloomington to Martinsville, will expand the current SR 37 to interstate standards. Included in these standards will be off/on ramps and assorted access and emergency roads.
