(INDIANAPOLIS) — Indiana Chamber of Commerce President Kevin Brinegar, who is also the board chair for Hoosier Voices for I-69, comments on the state’s announcement today that the Indiana Finance Authority is taking over management of the I-69 section from Bloomington to Martinsville:
“It’s the absolute right thing for the state to do to ensure that this segment and the entire project is completed as quickly as possible.
“We must stay on course, because the ramifications are too important. When fully finished, the new I-69 – from Evansville to Fort Wayne and beyond – will help further Indiana’s position as the Crossroads of America.
“It will provide many more Hoosiers with better road access, leading to reduced travel time. And that also is very attractive for businesses, making Indiana an even more viable hub for companies and new jobs.”
The Indiana Chamber partners with 25,000 members and investors – representing over four million Hoosiers – to achieve the mission of “cultivating a world-class environment which provides economic opportunity and prosperity.”
