(PRINCETON) - The state has opened the bidding on a contract to build the first section on the long-planned I-69 extension between Evansville and Indianapolis.

Contractors have already started clearing trees and homes in Gibson County. Construction is set to start in midsummer.

A federal judge in December ruled against environmental groups that had sued to try to block the highway.

Indiana Department of Transportation officials are concerned about threats to the project following an internet posting from an environmental group protesting the project.

In an effort to keep the peace, the Gibson County sheriff's department is conducting extra patrols.
