Two public meetings, one in-person and one virtual, will be held this week for an Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) project that is expected to improve traffic flow and safety along Indiana’s busiest interstate corridor. 80/94 FlexRoad will identify the best solutions for the I-80/I-94 corridor.
The public meetings will provide an update on the project, focus on next steps and offer an opportunity for one-on-one conversations with members of the Project Team.

Innovative strategies are being developed to help reduce travel time, increase reliability and improve safety. The project has moved to its next phase with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) study underway. It will examine the benefits, impacts and costs of four alternatives moving forward for additional analysis. The study is required for projects that will receive federal funding.
Strategies being considered include dynamic shoulder lanes, variable speed limits, ramp metering, lane control and queue warning systems. These are known as Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) strategies. Each of the four alternatives recommended for further evaluation includes a set of strategies aimed at improving reliability and safety.
