I-69 Planning Sparks Controversy Between State And Committee

A Monroe County group and the state of Indiana could be nearing a showdown concerning the Interstate 69 extension to Evansville.

INDOT Deputy Commissioner Sam Sarvis said the agency will reconsider discretionary funding within Monroe County.
