IDP Statement on Yet Another I-65 Bridge Problem in Lafayette

INDIANAPOLIS – Drew Anderson, communications director for the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after a large hole was found on another I-65 bridge near Lafayette.

“Add today’s I-65 bridge crisis to the list of the glaring problems showing that Indiana’s D+ rated infrastructure is literally crumbling before the eyes of Hoosier motorists. Problems like the large hole on another I-65 bridge put innocent lives at risk, and all Mike Pence can do is come up with short-term funding solutions that wouldn’t even go into effect until summer of 2016 – if approved. Hoosiers want to see action now, and they are tired of Mike Pence playing political games with every problem facing the state. It’s time Indiana has a new governor who will lead the state into the future instead of crumbling behind the rest of the nation.”
