I-69 plan changes cut properties affected by work

BLOOMINGTON (AP) — State officials say revised plans for a section of the Interstate 69 extension in central Indiana mean fewer homes and businesses would be torn down.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says the proposal for the 21-mile stretch of highway from just south of Bloomington to Martinsville will cost about $100 million less than an estimate released last year. The new estimate of $394 million released Monday is within several million of previous projections.

The Herald-Times and The Indianapolis Star report the new plan cuts the number of homes being bought from 150 down to 119. The number of businesses affected will go from 32 down to 17.

The new highway would largely follow the existing four-lane Indiana 37, but the state has no timeline for starting the work.
