Nierzwicki, Ellettsville Director of Planning Services, handed out packets on the
I-69 update. He attended a series of
meetings on I-69 last week. The
information in the packets was regarding three alternatives on interchanges and
access points. The interchange locations
were discussed around the State Road 46, Highway 37 and the I-69

public information concerning the interchanges. The Ellettsville access is
going to be an issue. The consultants
are projecting development in Ellettsville.
The traffic generated from that development will all flow toward the
State Road 46, Highway 37 and I-69 interchange.
