HB 1036 heads to Governor’s Desk

Posted on

The Indiana Senate passed a key piece of legislation that will allow transportation officials to decide the best route for I-69 into Indianapolis. HB 1036, authored by Rep. John Price (HD 47) and Sen. Rod Bray (SD 37), passed with a vote of 31-19. The bill will now move to Governor Mike Pence’s desk.

HB 1036 removed language from Indiana’s Major Moves legislation that required legislative approval for use of the Indiana-37 corridor. Currently, I-69 is running up the I-37 corridor from Bloomington, IN to Martinsville, IN.

Key partners, including BridgeLink, Hoosier Voices for I-69, the Southwest Indiana Chamber, the Indiana Chamber, and various local Chambers up and down the I-69 corridor, advocated for his piece of legislation.

Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is currently working on the development of Section 6, the final leg of I-69 from Evansville to Indianapolis. HB 1036 will allow transportation officials to make the best economic and environmental choice in where to route this final leg of I-69 into Indianapolis.
