The Mid-States Corridor Regional Development Authority (RDA) and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) have partnered to deliver the required Tier 1 Environmental Study for the Mid-States Corridor Project. It examines the concept of an improved highway connection in southern Indiana. It’s anticipated to begin at SR 66 near the William H. Natcher Bridge crossing the Ohio River at Rockport, continue generally through the Huntingburg and Jasper area and extend north to connect to Interstate 69.
