After coming out strongly this year in favor of public-private partnerships and concession deals to solve its transportation funding gaps, officials in Indiana are tinkering with how to put those delivery methods to use. Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) Nov. 9 announced that the state is scrapping plans to seek tolling on its $2-billion Interstate 69 project from Evansville to Indianapolis. This year, the Indiana General Assembly authorized Indiana DOT to seek public-private partnerships for the project. Daniels will seek legislation in 2007 to transfer that authority to a new project, the Indiana Commerce Connector. The 75-mile ICC would create an outerbelt tollway linking six Interstates near Indianapolis. Cost estimates and project details on the ICC are still being determined.
