The owners of some of the property needed to build a new Interstate 65 exit in Greenwood haven’t agreed to a sale, meaning a new exit won’t be built this year.

The new interchange on Worthsville Road was originally scheduled to open in the summer of 2015. Now, the Indiana Department of Transportation is asking for court orders to force property owners who have not agreed to sell to let the state buy their land.

If a judge approves, the landowners will be required to sell the five properties still needed for the new interchange, and construction will begin in the spring of 2015.
