Indiana Toll Road Seeks Bankruptcy as Traffic Declines

The operator of the Indiana Toll Road, owned by affiliates of Macquarie Group Ltd. and Ferrovial SA, sought bankruptcy protection with a creditor-supported restructuring plan after dwindling traffic soured a $3.8 billion bet on a 75-year lease.

The company listed assets and liabilities of more than $1 billion each in its Chapter 11 filing yesterday in Chicago bankruptcy court. The company has an estimated $6.3 billion in secured obligations when including projected amounts of interest through next August, according to court papers.
