It’s easy to track progress on I-69 Finish Line with construction photos updated weekly on our project website. See all of the progress that’s been made this past year in Martinsville and Morgan County. As construction moves to the north, watch for more construction photos this spring from Johnson and Marion counties. We combined some of our favorite winter shots into a short video with our crews working through the snow, rain and cold weather.
A new construction season calls for a new format for our On Track project update. We’ll continue to spotlight important project information, highlight progress and share upcoming work and traffic impacts. Information is now organized by county to make it easier to find what matters most to you.
