The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced that it will provide limited access to sections of the nearly completed Interstate 69 corridor for celebratory Community Day event on October 20th. This is the first time INDOT has allowed public access of this nature on an interstate highway under construction and community leaders plan to take advantage of this special opportunity before the new corridor opens later this year. Community Day events on the interstate will take place at five locations along the 67-mile stretch of the I-69 corridor. Each location will feature a variety of family friendly activities being planned by local organizing committees. Some of the highlights may include: 5k runs/walks, concerts, various games for kids, food vendors, special ceremonial remarks, a beauty pageant, chalk art, classic cars on display, corn hole, putting contests and more. The events will be free of charge, but we are asking attendees to bring canned goods and non-perishable food items to help support our area food pantries. “We are thrilled to offer this special opportunity for local communities to come out and celebrate on the alignment before we open the new I-69 to traffic,” said Samuel Sarvis, INDOT’s Deputy Commissioner for Major Programs.   If you would like attend this historic event join us on I69 between SR 64 and County Road 350 starting at 11:00 am till dusk.  For more information please contact the Gibson County Chamber of Commerce 812-385-2134 or office@gibsoncountychamber.org
