The new I-69 Evansville to Indianapolis project is 142-miles and divided into six independent sections. The Indiana Finance Authority and Indiana Department of Transportation contracted with I-69 Development Partners to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain I-69 Section 5. Section 5 will lengthen I-69 by 21-miles, extending the alignment north-northwest from Bloomington to Martinsville. The project will rehabilitate and upgrade the existing State Road 37, a four-lane median divided highway, to interstate standards.
As part of the conversion, four new interchanges will be designed at Fullerton Pike, Tapp Road, Sample Road and Liberty Church Road. Tapp, Sample and Liberty Church will be roundabout interchanges. The improvements also include the construction of four grade separated crossings at Rockport Road, Vernal Pike, Kinser Pike and Chambers Pike.
Shrewsberry provided design assistance for six design units and sub-design units. Shrewsberry was the lead design firm for the coordination, roadway design and hydraulic design of the Tapp Road roundabout interchange. We were able to provide unique design solutions to INDOT/IFA for both constructability and reduced cost due to certain constraints encountered.
