The Indiana Department of Transportation has commissioned a Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) study to determine how to apply the latest technologies to cost-effectively improve traffic on I-80/94 between Illinois 394 and I-65 so that drivers get less stop and more go.
INDOT hosted two public information meetings July 28 and 29 and a virtual meeting August 3 regarding this study. All materials from the meetings, including a recording of the virtual meeting, are available on the project website: www.indianaflexroad.com.
INDOT is seeking input from the public regarding their experiences using this corridor and the potential strategies being considered to make it work better. Comments are being accepted on the project website through September 3, 2021. The website includes an interactive map where users can review the project area and leave comments on areas needing potential review.
More public meetings will be scheduled this fall to provide an update on the study’s progress as a result of the comments provided. Information about those meetings will be provided on the project website, through email, and on the INDOT Northwest Facebook and Twitter pages.
