Entry Description

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has awarded a construction contract for nearly four miles of Interstate 69 in Monroe County between Harmony Road and a Branch of Clear Creek.  The winning bid of $57.5 million was 16 percent below the engineer’s cost estimate.

 

Samuel Sarvis, INDOT’s Deputy Commissioner of Major Programs stated, “Another important piece of the I-69 puzzle is set in place with the awarding of this contract.  I-69 is a vital connection that will serve as a catalyst for economic growth and will improve safety of the motoring public not just for southwest Indiana but the whole state.” 

 

E.S. Wagner Company, of Toledo, Ohio, submitted the best and lowest bid among seven companies bidding on this contract.  INDOT is required to allow all qualified companies to bid on all contracts, without consideration to their geographical location. Federal guidelines prohibit geographic discrimination when awarding projects developed with federal funds.

 

I-69 is part of Governor Mitch Daniels’ Major Moves highway program, capitalizing on Indiana’s strategic location as the Crossroads of America by improving and expanding road infrastructure in support of a stronger economy and greater mobility for all. Sixty-five miles between Evansville and the Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center are currently under construction and scheduled to open at the end of 2012. 

 

The 142 mile I-69 corridor between Evansville and Indianapolis was divided into six independent sections with the Tier 1 Final Environmental Impact Study, which was approved by the Federal Highway Administration in March 2004.  In May of 2010, Governor Daniels announced an accelerated construction schedule for Section 4 of the corridor. The 27 miles between Crane and Bloomington are on schedule to open by the end of 2014.
