IN-DOT officials say they have awarded a $90 million contract that will spur work on I-69 in Monroe and Greene counties.
Gohmann Asphalt & Construction of Clarksville will build 6.5 miles of new interstate near the Greene/Monroe County Line.
The 142 mile, I-69 corridor was divided into six separate sections of the Final Environmental Impact Study in 2003. The entire span runs from Evansville to Indianapolis.
Another major section of the project connecting U.S. 231 near Crane Naval Center and State Road 37 south of Bloomington is expected to open by the end of 2014.
