The estimated cost is $16.5 million, using both federal and state funds.

An INDOT website offers added details on the project. The plans can also be viewed at Lebanon Public Library, 104 E. Washington St.. The plans also are available at the INDOT Crawfordsville District facility at 41 Montgomery County Road West 300 North, just northwest of the I-74 interchange for U.S. 231 near Crawfordsville.
