INDOT To Host Two Open Houses Regarding I-69

Open Houses for Property Owners Impacted by Section 6 of I-69

State transportation officials will meet with homeowners who might have to sell to make room for the last leg of the I-69 extension from Martinsville to Indianapolis. The Indiana Department of Transportation will host two open houses next week. The first is Monday at Perry Meridian High School, 401 W. Meridian School Road, Indianapolis. The second is Tuesday at Martinsville High School, 1360 E. Gray St., Martinsville. The meetings will be from 5 to 8 p.m.

INDOT announced earlier this year that the last of six sections of I-69 from Evansville will follow the path of Ind. 37 to the southern edge of Marion County. Though the interstate will be built on an existing road, the state still needs to purchase private property and displace residents and businesses because a federal highway requires more room than a state road. The state estimates that in a worst-case scenario it could acquire as many as 279 homes and 96 businesses. But the exact route won’t be determined until 2018, and the amount of land acquired could be less.

Under the powers of eminent domain, the state can take private property for public use. In the first five sections of the highway project, the state paid $184 million for 348 properties.
