New I-69 exit at 106th Street a possibility in Fishers’ future
The Fishers Town Council voted on an agreement to build a new exit at I-69 and 106th Street at last night’s meeting.
The exit would cost an estimated $25 million to complete. Fishers would be responsible for $8 million of the costs. Hamilton County is set to kick in $2 million, with INDOT paying more than half of the cost at $15 million.
At Current’s press time, it was not known whether the vote passed, but if it did, wheels would be set in motion to make the project a reality. After the local funds are secured, INDOT would proceed with “initial planning and environmental review” according to a press release.
Pending the council’s vote, a contract is slated to be awarded in 2014, with construction starting in 2015.
The project would also need to be approved by the Federal Highway Administration, as well as the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization.
