Some of the above information may change soon as a major highway
project nears its end.
I-69 is an interstate highway that runs from the northeast side of
Indianapolis to the Michigan/Canada border.
In 1991, it was designated as a corridor of national significance.
In 2014, Congress passed legislation to extend the corridor from
Indianapolis to the Lower Rio Grande Valley (Texas/Mexican border.)
This involved connecting and widening existing highways, adding new
roads and bridges as well as removing crossroads with signals that
would slow traffic.
In 2019, construction began in Indiana to make I-69 run from Evansville
Indiana to the southwest side of Indianapolis.
Indianapolis is also adding more lanes to I-465, the highway that loops
around Indy. Construction is expected to end in 2024.
Completion of the I-69 corridor will provide a continuous highway link,
designed to interstate highway standards, from the Mexican border to
the Canadian border, a route length of approximately 1,650 miles.
