Nearly $500 million to be spent on Southern IN road projects

Major improvements to US 231 in Martin and Dubois County are set to start late next year. Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced late last week that the state will invest $75 million for the design and construction of additional travel lanes, passing lanes and intersection improvements at specific locations along a 48-mile stretch of U.S. 231 between I-64 and I-69. The governor’s office says the improvements will “significantly reduce” congestion in the Jasper and Huntingburg areas.
