WOODBURN – On Nov. 21, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and dignitaries from northeast Indiana officially opened the state’s section of new U.S. 24, completing the “Fort to Port” project between Fort Wayne and Toledo that has been in the works for decades.

The four-lane divided highway spans a total of 93 miles and replaces a winding, two-lane rural road that was long considered dangerous and congested.

The 11.2-mile Indiana segment extends from I-469 at New Haven to the state line. Indiana financed the $93 million construction cost through the governor’s Major Moves highway program with assets from the lease of the Indiana Toll Road.
