I-69 Contract Awarded to Indiana Company for $57M

White Construction of Clinton is low bidder on three miles in Greene Co.

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has awarded a $57 million contract to an Indiana company for a three-mile section of Interstate 69 in Greene County. The bid submitted by White Construction Inc of Clinton was the lowest among five contractors and $261,000 below the engineer’s cost estimate.

 

The three-mile contract begins near Dry Branch Road in Greene County and ends just before the State Road 45 interchange. One additional construction contract remains to be awarded for the 27 miles of I-69 Section 4 between Crane and Bloomington, with contractor bids scheduled to be opened in March.

 

“Indiana continues to move forward under budget with the I-69 corridor, and today we’re one step closer to connecting with State Road 37 near Bloomington,” said Samuel Sarvis, INDOT’s Deputy Commissioner of Major Programs. “We know that I-69 will improve the safety of the motoring public and become a spark for economic growth along the corridor.”

 

The new Interstate 69 between Evansville and Indianapolis is widely regarded as a key component to the future economic vitality of southwestern Indiana, and will connect an entire region with improved access to jobs, education and healthcare. Governor Mitch Daniels accelerated the I-69 schedule with his Major Moves highway program, saving nearly $80 million in construction costs. The 67 miles that opened for business in November also save motorists more than 30 minutes in travel time when compared to other routes between U.S. 231 near Crane and I-64 near Evansville.

 

For more information about I-69, please visit www.i69indyevn.org or the I-69 Bloomington Project Office across S.R. 45 from Wal-Mart at 3802 Industrial Boulevard, Unit 2.
