Governor will open I-69 Monday | Transportation
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will be joined by federal, state and local officials to officially open the first three sections of the new I-69 corridor running through Gibson County and southwest Indiana on Monday. The new sections will cover a 67-mile stretch that comprises what has been the longest contiguous new interstate construction project in the United States.
Grand opening events will be held at three locations and Gov. Daniels will lead a ceremonial parade ride between them. The new I-69 corridor will officially open to traffic by 6 p.m. ET that same day, in time for the Thanksgiving travel holiday. Due to event parking constraints, all grand opening events are by invitation only.
