Project Introduction

The I-69 Section 5 project involves rehabilitating and upgrading 21 miles of the existing four lane State Road 37 in Morgan and Monroe counties to interstate standards from Bloomington to just south of Martinsville, Indiana. As part of the conversion, the existing partially-controlled limited access facility will be upgraded to have fully controlled access and will include the addition of travel lanes in the north and southbound lanes, four new interchanges at Fullerton Pike, Tapp Road, Sample Road and Liberty Church Road and the construction of four grade separated crossings at Rockport Road, Vernal Pike, Kinser Pike and Chambers Pike. After construction is complete, access to I-69 Section 5 will be provided via new parallel service roads to locations where existing or new interchanges are located. The south terminus of Section 5 is located at the intersection of That Road/SR 37 in Monroe County just north of the I-69/SR 37 interchange currently being constructed as part of the Section 4 project). The corridor proceeds to the northeast through northern Monroe County into southern Morgan County. The north terminus of Section 5 is the south bridge approach of the Indian Creek Bridge which is located south of the existing SR 39/SR 37 interchange within the Section 6 project limits. Within the I-69 Section 5 corridor, existing SR 37 runs along the west side of the City of Bloomington, through rural Monroe and Morgan counties, ending south of the City of Martinsville. The project is located in the Indiana Department of Transportation’s Seymour District and is part of the I-69, Evansville to Indianapolis corridor.
