Put the money down toward a suburban commuter rail system. Asphalt and concrete only lasts so long before you have to tear it all up and repave. Whereas a monorail type system only requires minimal maintenance in comparison to roads. Wake up and use your Hoosier common sense.
Finally someone thinking down the line...Mass Transportation must change...that is if you want your childrens children to be able to go outside w/o wearing a surgical mask. Light rail systems like the Subway in NYC, Chicago Elevated Trains, San Francisco BART, Londons Underground...etc...etc... Indiana must thinking 50yrs down the line. Concrete is just crashed rock and water...Light rail systems are the future. Think Now...or Pay later.

Really who is approving all of these decisions. The old saying goes don't try to fix something that is not broke. I-70 was fine, not to mention they have worked on it every year for almost the past decade. Work needs to be done to come up with a solution for 65-South and the Fishers/Ft.Wayne exits.

Just some more stupid decision made on the ill-advised group who overlooks such projects. Lets all waste money!

And I agree with the public transportation. Indianapolis has the worst public transportation. I am use to traveling on New York subways, but still Indianapolis must improve it transportation methods. If you do not own a vehicle there is not any means for you to get around Indianapolis. Public transportation needs to be invested in more than anything. ESPECIALLY WITH GAS RISING>

So rising fuel and building supplies costs is Mitch's fault, too? Maybe you should remember that without Mitch's vision, imagination, and outside-the-box thinking, all of these projects wouldn't be paid for in advance. I'm tired of Mitch getting blamed for everything. Why don't you look at all of the growth and opportunity coming Indiana's way, and leave your partisan ideals out of it? What next? Are you going to blame Mitch for the noise and dust coming from the Honda plant's construction site? Growth requires leaders and visionarys, and we are blessed to have Mitch Daniels as our governor.

Use the money for a reservoir near Greensburg? "Fools with your money".

Bauer for Governor? How about Bauer spend the rest of his life looking for a decent hair piece and a good diet!
