"Although we still have several years left until this project is complete, the Hoosier Heartland Corridor is already shaping up to address our region's transportation needs. The project promises to increase economic development and to connect our communities."

The project is a part of Major Moves, an initiative Rep. McClain supported in order to connect Logansportand Delphi with key economic centers in the Midwest.
