After decades of waiting, crews are finally breaking ground on the Interstate 69 extension. Some of the first bulldozers began knocking down trees Tuesday afternoon, making room for the interstate. According to an INDOT spokesperson, homes wont be torn down until at least April. The project will demolish more than 400 Hoosier homes. Although work has begun, some of those residents losing their homes are still fighting back. INDOTs spokesperson says environmental studies have been conducted for more than a decade, making this the most studied corridor in state history.
