The Indiana Department of Transportation has published a request for proposals, looking for private-sector innovations regarding the I-69 Ohio River Crossing project in southwest Indiana. INDOT says the innovations would help expedite the preliminary design and environmental review process for Indiana and Kentucky.
Both the preliminary design and environmental review would collect public input and study potential routes for the interstate extension, as well as funding sources for the project. When the project was announced in late June, leaders said both states would split costs and oversight of the preliminary design and environmental testing work.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed a memorandum of agreement for the project. Both governors said they have set aside a total of $17 million for development costs.
