In Indiana, State Steps In To Rescue Private Highway Project03:40

This article is more than 3 years old.

The state of Indiana has had to rescue a privately run highway project that is two years behind schedule and far from complete. Back in 2014, then-Gov. Mike Pence touted the project as innovative because Indiana hired a company to build the final stretch of Interstate 69 in an agreement called a public-private partnership. But now, the state has had to take it over.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Kaitlin Lange (@kaitlin_lange), statehouse bureau reporter for The Indianapolis Star, about what's happened.
