Released 07.12.19...  Gov. Holcomb has decided to use the $300 million state excess to pay directly for several one-time capital projects...

(One is)   $78 million to eliminate all stoplights and rail crossings on U.S. 31 between South Bend and Indianapolis.

Excellent upgrades to the corridor and also staying true to his pledge to enabling this US 31 segment to be driven "without any stops."

The Ghostbuster:
I don't want to see any more posts that US 31 should become Interstate 67, because outside of Fictional Highways, IT WILL NOT HAPPEN! At least not anytime soon.

^ He didn't say anything about "Interstate 67".

Back on topic, I'm presuming Indiana law and the state constitution give the Governor the authority to direct spending like this?  I don't disagree that spending surplus money on capital projects is beneficial...I'm just not familiar with states where this doesn't require legislation.

There was an EIS in the federal register last week for a North South. Corridor South of 69 in the area between 231 and 37. I did not as a it in their long term plan it the 31 improvements were.
