The Indiana Department of Transportation says a study of the U.S. 30 and 31 corridors gets underway this fall.
ProPEL is an INDOT initiative to streamline transportation planning using collaborative PEL studies to consider environmental, community and economic goals early in the planning process. INDOT says ProPEL studies will assess innovative ways to renovate our roadways and corridors, while prioritizing community needs and equitable infrastructure.
INDOT is asking for the Hoosiers’ input as it begins streamlined planning studies along the U.S. 30 corridor in Northern Indiana.
U.S. 30 West: Study area extends from SR 49 (Valparaiso County) to West County Road 700 North (Fulton County) and Beech Road (Marshall County).
U.S. 30 East: Study area extends from Beech Road (Marshall County) to the Indiana/Ohio state line (Allen County).
Multiple public meetings will be held along the corridors, with the first set of meetings expected this fall. The PEL studies will examine mobility, safety, economic development, land use, environmental impacts and other factors along the corridor.
U.S. 31 North: Study area extends from just south of Eel River (Miami County) to just south of the Fulton/Marshall County line.
U.S. 31 South: Study area extends from 276th Street (Hamilton County) to just south of Eel River (Miami County)
Studies are to be complete by Fall of 2024. Public meetings are expected to be scheduled for this fall.
