Is I-65 project in legal slow lane?

The state is working to settle lawsuits with three Greenwood property owners to buy land for an Interstate 65 exit at Worthsville Road.

In February, five property owners hadn’t agreed to sell, delaying the project for a year. The new interchange on Worthsville Road originally was to open in the summer of 2015, but now construction won’t even start until next year.

Currently, the Indiana Department of Transportation has three ongoing lawsuits asking for court orders to force property owners to sell their land. In all, the state needed to buy 15 properties for the interchange project, including three with homes on them.
