Planners are inching closer to a new highway in southern Indiana. The Mid-States Corridor project team last week chose what they are calling the ‘Alternative P’ route from I-69 down to the Rockport area. The idea is to build a new, larger highway that can accolade more traffic. The proposed route would skirt around Huntingburg and Jasper. Nothing is final, and there are a lot more decisions to be made. There are a couple of public hearings next week to let people see the plan, and gather feedback from locals who may be impacted.
Public Hearings are scheduled to be held on Tuesday, April 26th from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm EDT at 13598 East West Gate Dr. in Odon, as well as Thursday, April 28th from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm EDT at 951 College Avenue in Jasper.
