Interstate 69 Economic Development Plan
When Interstate 69 was expected to radically change transportation routes and development patterns in Martinsville, the community partnered with HWC to plan its response. HWC crafted an economic development plan to guide the changes and demonstrate the need for key interchanges that were proposed. When budget cuts threatened to eliminate key interchanges, HWC’s plan was used to demonstrate their long term value to the city and State. Additionally, the city was able to use HWC’s plan to secure nearly $15 million in funding for road improvements that supported community connectivity goals.
