Outgoing Gov. Daniels says I-69 will be finished

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Outgoing Gov. Mitch Daniels says construction of Indiana’s Interstate 69 extension may slow down in the years ahead but the state is committed to finishing the project.

Daniels leaves office Monday, when Gov.-elect Mike Pence is sworn in. He tells The Herald-Times future administrations must decide how to allocate money to the project each year. Daniels says that might mean a construction slowdown, but completion of the Evansville-to-Indianapolis highway “is a question of when, not if.”

Funding Indiana set aside for the 142-mile-long project from the leasing of the Indiana Toll Road has already been spent or allocated.

The extension’s first 67 miles opened in November from Evansville to Crane. A Crane-to-Bloomington segment set to open by late 2014 will bring the highway to 94 miles.
