INDOT Officials Propose Two I-69/SR 37 Interchange Options

One option allows travel nearer to highway speed, but it'll cost significantly more.

    This interchange would be slower for drivers, but less expensive to construct.

    This interchange would be faster for motorists, but would cost an estimated $1 million more.

INDOT officials Wednesday have proposed two possibilities for how the interchange between Interstate 69 and State Road 37 might be constructed.

One plan would require drivers to reduce their speeds to 20 mph and would include a roundabout, while the other plan would allow cars to move faster upon entering and exiting I-69. The plan allowing for higher speeds would cost about $1 million more. According to INDOT Deputy Commissioner for Major Project Management Sam Sarvis, the agency will be asking for public input before a final decision on which plan to implement.

“There’ll be a reevaluation process and public input this spring, and the decision will be made sometime after that, after we have got all that public input,” Sarvis says.

Sarvis says the construction of the interchange could begin as early as January or February of next year, with completion anticipated by the end of 2014.
