IDOT and INDOT have been gathering stakeholder input and presenting technical analysis through a series of Corridor Planning Group/Technical Task Force meetings, involving elected officials, community representatives, agencies and other interested stakeholders. Thus far, IDOT, INDOT and stakeholders have identified the transportation needs for initial range of corridor locations. This extensive analysis and coordination effort is summarized by the following need statements: improve regional mobility, address local system deficiencies, and provide efficient movement of freight. These needs will provide a basis for evaluation of potential corridor locations and alternatives as the study progresses. IDOT and INDOT are seeking further stakeholder input on the identified needs as well as the initial list of project alternatives, and will consider this input as the planning process moves forward.
The meetings will be an open house format, and interested persons may attend anytime between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. There will be a continuous PowerPoint presentation, and attendees will have the opportunity to view study exhibits and speak with IDOT, INDOT and study team representatives on a one-on-one basis. A question and answer forum will be held at 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. each day.
