Groundbreaking for I-69 in Indiana

Going from Evansville to Indianapolis is about to get much easier.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Interstate 69 extension was held Thursday.  City, regional, and state leaders were on hand to celebrate the start of construction.

Hundreds of supporters listened as Governor Mitch Daniels gave the keynote address: "Today we end the interminable waiting, the unfulfilled hopes, the empty promises.  Starting today, I-69 becomes real, and it's about time."

The new interstate will run 142 miles, linking Evansville to Indianapolis.
