INDOT asking for public comments on I-65, I-70 split project

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) invites the public to Community Conversation meetings to learn more about initial insights from ProPEL Indy, a two-year study of I-65 and I-70 within the I-465 loop in Indianapolis.

The study will inform the next 20 years of investment in transportation infrastructure by developing a bold vision to modernize interstates inside the loop, according to INDOT.

These meetings will be held in June. A presentation will begin 30 minutes after doors open:
