Oh, no, not more highways. Really, come on! I understand economic development, but now we are turning too much farm land into areas around highways and Indiana will lose a lot of its Hoosier charm and just be a place people drive through.

This is so obvious and long needed that it should be a slam dunk. My only change would be to make the piece from I-70 to Martinsville part of I-69 and get rid of all of the problems that are going to be created with the present route down SR 37. That would make a natural swing past the airport for I-69, which makes a lot of economic sense. Future planning should include extending the new road up the west side between Avon and Danville to near Lebanon then east past Noblesville to reconnect with I-69.

To be honest. who realy wants a combine in the road anywhay?
I lived in Martinsville and am glad gald glad to be away. Beleive me it is a place you would only drive through. They are some very very narrow minded people and they don't understand change. They have so much potential for some real homespun pride but most of them are self depricating and think of Martinsville as a bad place. Martinsville isn't realy all that bad and it has a great location in between Indy and Bloomington. The High School is wonderful (though becasue of its students not its facilities) but there will never be good development there. They were excited about a steak and shake but they dont share that same excitement from even a moderate development. They hear the word change and scoff themselves into a corner. The road will be built but because of the narrow sighted town governemnt the impact will only be a bad one. More noise and less profit.
By the way we have enogh damn cornfields we don't have enough jobs!
