In Indiana, I-69 exists in two disconnected portions. When Governor Mitch Daniels took office, he pledged to connect the highway from Evansville to Indianapolis, citing the economic development potential.

INDOT has awarded bids to contractors to build the road, but much about the project- including the route it will take and where the funding will come from remains uncertain. Opponents are complaining about everything from the loss of farmland, forested areas, wetlands and rare species to the need to subsidize a project — through federal dollars or private toll collection.

    “bring hope and life to some of the poorest parts of Indiana”……Mitch Daniel is a real piece of work…..he needs to look at a map. In Indiana, the high unemployment and lowest per-capita incomes are in counties with interstate highways.”I hope the people of Bloomington will have some heart”…Daniels strength has always been that of a corporate pitch man. He is an extortionist.
