(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton responded to the Indiana Finance Authority and Indiana Department of Transportation's joint announcement today that Section 5 of I-69 through Bloomington would continue to be under construction through May 2018.

In December, the I-69 Development Partners announced a completion date of October 2017.

"Bloomington has borne the brunt of many delays and frustrations with I-69. I appreciate the meeting I had with Governor Holcomb last week, and his phone call to me today to inform us all of the state's latest decisions. Another delay means for us another winter and spring of difficult travel, lost productivity and danger. I hope this will be the last of these announcements we receive. I look forward to the Governor getting back to me with specific accountability and assurance mechanisms he will put in place if the project falls behind this latest schedule. I do appreciate the personal commitment our new governor has exhibited toward completion of a project that has dragged on far too long," commented Mayor Hamilton.
