I-69 is important from an Indiana perspective because it increases opportunities for economic development, improves transportation and strengthens our state’s defense industry.
- I-69 completes the link between Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Bloomington and Evansville, and ties rural communities to economic development opportunities.
- I-69 is a catalyst for technology transfer, connecting defense, education, and commerce efforts throughout Indiana; expanding broadband networks along with other infrastructure development along the corridor should be prioritized.
- Support is needed for the development of an interstate quality bridge between Evansville and Henderson, Kentucky. An alternative is needed for this aging infrastructure, which was built in the 1930s.
- I-69 is strategically important as a national freight corridor and should be designated as part of the National Freight Network and as a Project of National and Regional Significance.
