A version of the federal transportation bill that would eliminate MPOs has passed the Senate.
The MPO has voted to include I-69 in its Transportation Improvement Plan.
The Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization could make its final decision on I-69 at its meeting Friday.
The U.S. House of Representatives plans to pick the bill back up after next week's recess.
INDOT and the Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization met Friday to officially invite several city and county organizations for their input.
The Bloomington Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization Policy Committee's I-69 subcommittee will meet this Friday, February 10.
There is also a letter from U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood to Governor Mitch Daniels.
The MPO will take up the issue of I-69 again in February.
According to the subcommittee, if a new TIP is not approved by the state, Bloomington and Monroe County will lose millions in federal funding.
Daniels says Bloomington needs to include I-69 in its transportation plans or it could lose funding.
