Greenwood mayor pushes for I-65 interchange

Greenwood Mayor Charles Henderson says his city is willing to pay up to $8 million toward construction of a new Interstate
65 interchange in order to speed up the project.

Henderson wants work started in the next few years on the interchange
about two miles south of the existing Main Street junction.

Such a project would normally be paid for with federal
and state money, but Henderson is offering to pay one-third of its estimated $24 million cost from a special taxing district
for infrastructure improvements.

Henderson says the normal approval process is slow and he’s pushing the interchange
project because it could boost business development in his city just south of Indianapolis.
