(MARTINSVILLE) - A state agency is starting to do surveying work along the route planned for the final leg of the Interstate 69 extension in central Indiana.

The Indiana Department of Transportation is having the work done along the current Indiana 37 corridor between Martinsville and Interstate 465 in Indianapolis.

Agency spokesman Andy Dietrick tells The (Bloomington) Herald-Times that some minor route changes are expected as it completes a final environmental impact study for submission to federal officials by early next year.

The cost for buying land and building the 26-mile section is estimated at about $1.5 billion. Funding and a timeline for construction haven't been set.

The I-69 extension is now open between Evansville and Bloomington. The Bloomington-to-Martinsville section has faced construction delays and now is scheduled for May 2018 completion.
