Motorists soon will be able to drive straight down a split four-lane highway from Johnson County all the way to Evansville, and the stretch of State Road 37 through the Center Grove area is going to get busier.
A divided four-lane highway already connects Bloomington to Indianapolis. In 2014, Interstate 69 should be completed between Bloomington and Evansville.
Once that link is finished, motorists can expect more traffic through the section of State Road 37 that passes through northwestern Johnson County and possibly more new development in the Center Grove area.
Johnson County’s section of State Road 37 eventually could become part of the new section of I-69 that will run through southwestern Indiana. But that part of State Road 37 will immediately become part of a continuous divided four-lane highway to Evansville in 2014, when the southern sections of I-69 will be finished.
