The Indiana Department of Transportation says construction of another piece of Interstate 69 in southwestern Indiana's
Daviess County should begin later this summer.
INDOT said Monday it has awarded a nearly $60 million contract to two construction companies working as a joint venture to
build a more than five-mile stretch of four-lane in eastern Daviess County.
The area is part of the third of six sections of the highway designed to connect Indianapolis and Evanville.
Gov. Mitch Daniels has said INDOT will release its draft environmental impact statement for the next section by July 3. That
section covers 27 miles from Crane to Bloomington.
