Informational meeting tonight on the impacts of the I-69 Corridor in Indiana

I-69 Corridor – Proposed Route

I-69 Corridor – Proposed Route (Sections 1-6)

The Hoosier Environmental Council (HEC) will be hosting an informational forum concerning Indiana Department of Transportation’s (INDOT) I-69 corridor project, a 142-mile highway connecting Indianapolis and Evansville. The meeting will take place at the Wirth Park Community Building in Oakland City, Wednesday, October 20, 2010 beginning at 6:30 PM. This event is geared toward private property owners and will provide Pike and Gibson County residents a chance to ask questions about how the Section 2 of the proposed I-69 project will affect them, their property, and their way of life. Note: this meeting is not sponsored by INDOT but by individuals and groups whose focus is upon environmental impacts, property rights and the use of eminent domain.
