I-69 Expansion Project

Indiana’s I-69 Extension Project is part of a multi-state highway project to connect Canada to Mexico through the heart of the United States. Indiana’s portion of this interstate project is the largest new-terrain highway project in the United States, and involves 142 miles of pavement connecting Evansville to Indianapolis. Yasmin L. Stump Law Group, PC handled about 300 eminent domain cases involving agricultural, residential, commercial, industrial, and special use properties on Sections one through five of the I -69 Extension Project. These eminent domain cases also included properties with unique karst features (karst features being topographical  characteristics such as caves and sinkholes, common in areas rich with limestone) and mineral interests, as well as critical tree-clearing deadlines for the project. The eminent domain cases involved in the project that YLSLG handled spanned Daviess, Pike, Gibson, Greene, Monroe, and Morgan counties.

The I-69 Extension Project’s purpose is to revitalize southwestern Indiana by connecting “an entire region with improved access to jobs, education and healthcare”, according to INDOT. Sections one through five, which connect Martinsville to Evansville, are now open to traffic. The project is expected to conclude in 2024, with the completion of Section 6 connecting Evansville to Indianapolis.
