Indiana Highway Files Bankruptcy

State officials say don't expect any changes in the daily operations of the Indiana Toll Road since the highway's private operator filed for bankruptcy. Chicago-based ITR Concession Company filed for bankruptcy on Sunday, after failing to make a $102 million dollar interest payment last June. The debt comes from a 2006 deal, when the toll road's parent company decided to pay Indiana $3.8 billion up front for a 75-year lease of the 157-mile stretch of road. ITR said last week they would try to sell the highway lease to pay off the debt. Despite any kind of financial plunders, Governor Pence says Hoosiers can expect business as usual soq.
