Interstate 69

I-69 currently goes from the northwest side of Indianapolis to north of Angola with another 68 mile section open north of I-64 near Evansville up to US 231 near Crane NSA. The section from US 231 to SR 37 is under construction and scheduled to be open in late 2014 or 2015. I-164 is scheduled to be subsumed into I-69 in 2014. The length of the so-far completed Indiana route of I-69 is approximately 244 miles not including the current SR 37 and I-465 overlaps. The final mileage of the highway in Indiana will be over 320 miles when fully complete making it the longest route in the state surpassing US 231.

I-69 was originally planned to run from just east of Indianapolis (meeting with Interstate 70) to the toll road near the Indiana-Ohio Border. Indiana and Michigan agreed to a shifting of the northernmost portion of I-69 to its present position (removing a planned I-67 from between Kalamazoo and Elkhart for the mileage); then the southern portion of I-69 was shifted to meet SR 37 and to more directly connect into downtown Indianapolis. It was supposed to meet I-70 downtown. I-69 never made it downtown, however. The main, original section ends at I-465 in the Castleton area of Indianapolis (northeast). This section was completed around 1970 The I-165 designation was floated as a connector between I-69 and I-65/70 (to save money on moving/making signs), but that died out as well.

For the new southern section, the Indiana "3C" route was selected in January, 2003. This corridor goes through Washington, Newberry, Elnora, Bloomington, and Martinsville. There are plans to expand I-69 all the way down to the Texas-Mexico border - as of 2013, only bits and pieces exist in Texas, Mississippi, and Kentucky. Indiana built the I-69 with narrower medians and fewer interchanges to generally control construction costs, stay within the $700M funding available, and open the highway faster. INDOT also discussed using thinner asphalt pavement (i.e. staged), but most of the road ended up being paved with concrete.

The proposed I-69 is to cross the Ohio River into Kentucky on a new bridge and routing east of US 41. The total cost of the new bridge project is expected to exceed $1B with costs shared between the two states. South of there it is to meet existing Kentucky parkways which will take it south and west.

The full, planned route of I-69 is from the current northern/eastern terminus in Port Huron, Michigan southwest to the Rio Grande River in Texas.
