INDOT Renumbering I-69 Exits Statewide

Under a bill that is heading to the U.S. House of Representatives, governors could change local metropolitan planning organizations transportation plans to fit with state and federal interests regarding interstates.

If you have GPS, it may need some time to adjust to new exit numbers on I-69. The Indiana Department of Transportation is renumbering the exits to reflect its extension to Evansville. The current endpoint of the highway at I-465 had been Exit 0. It now has two numbers, zero and 200. All the other numbers north to the Michigan line will increase by 200 as well.

Highway crews have been installing new exit signs for a few weeks now. INDOT spokesperson Nathan Riggs says for awhile, both the old and new numbers will be in place.

“We’re leaving the old placards on the exit sign and on the advance warning signs for the exits, so we’ll leave up the old exit numbers on the signs for at least three years, and up to five years,” Riggs says.

The signs with the old numbers will be scrapped as they wear out.

Riggs says INDOT has been in touch with various GPS manufacturers about the new numbers. He says some of the companies will automatically update their programming, but others require users to do the updating.

The first 65-mile stretch of the I-69 extension, running from Evansville to Crane, is scheduled to open this year.
