Dubois Strong has committed $10,000 to the Interstate 67 Development Corporation in support of the ongoing effort to establish an Interstate highway corridor through South-Central Indiana.
The decision to support the initiative comes after the publication of a Feasibility Study in 2012 and a recent trip by local officials and business leaders to Washington, D.C., aimed at raising awareness within Congress of the need for an improved highway corridor.
The proposed I-67 would upgrade part of U.S. 231 to interstate quality and a new, 38-mile section of road would be constructed east of the current highway to connect to I-69 in Washington. The road would run on to Owensboro before continuing on to I-65 at Bowling Green. Ultimately, the corridor could extend from Nashville, TN, to Grand Rapids, MI.
