The Indiana Finance Authority and INDOT today announced four teams have been selected to compete to design, build, finance, operate and maintain Indiana's portion of the Illiana Corridor and I-65 expansion in Lake County. The four finalists were selected from six teams that responded to a recent request for qualifications. Indiana anticipates issuing a final request for proposals this summer following federal environmental approval. Construction on the Illiana, the proposed 47 mile freeway that would extend from I-55 in Will County, Illinois, to I-65 in Lake County, is anticipated to begin construction in late spring/early summer 2015.
