(BLOOMINGTON) - A southern Indiana panel has delayed voting on adding a hotly debated section of the Interstate 69 extension into its transportation plan.

A committee of the Bloomington-Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization decided Friday to delay voting on the highway's Monroe County portion until November.

In May, the panel approved a revised local plan that omitted Monroe County's portion of I-69, citing concerns about how it will be funded, its environmental impact and the location of interchanges.
The Indiana Department of Transportation has asked the panel to add this section of I-69 and resubmit its plan.

The panel's decision came a day after federal officials approved construction plans for a 27-mile section of the highway from near the Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center to just south of Bloomington.
