The new I-69 southbound pavement and bridges are expected to be built between Belmont Avenue in Marion County and Fairview Road in Johnson County. New access roads will also be built along both sides of the existing S.R. 37. Along the southeast side, a new road will connect Stones Crossing Road and Travis Road to the future S.R. 144 interchange. Along the northwest side, access roads will connect S.R. 144, Smith Valley Road to a new roundabout at the County Line Road interchange. The existing S.R. 37 northbound bridge over Honey Creek, which is just north of Smith Valley Road, will be widened as the first step in building the new I-69 lanes and bridges in that area.
Huggin Hollow Road is being realigned north of Banta Road to connect with N. Waverly Park Road/Old S.R. 37 just south of S.R. 144. The new roadway is expected to open in mid-summer.
S.R. 37 lanes may be shifted and restricted to build the new I-69 in phases, but two lanes are expected to remain open northbound for the weekday morning rush and southbound for the evening rush.
