Rochester one site of INDOT public meetings for US 30 and US 31 corridors

The ProPEL US 30 and US 31 study teams are asking for Hoosiers’ input as they begin Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) studies along approximately 180 miles of US 30 and US 31.

 

The study teams will host six public information meetings to provide updates and gather input about the vision and scope for the planning studies, including local transportation needs and community priorities along the US 30 and US 31 corridors in northern Indiana.

 

Public information meetings will be held in each of the four study areas:

In addition to public information meetings, ProPEL US 30 and US 31 study team members are visiting communities on a regular basis to hold office hours. Office hours are informal, in-person conversations where residents, businesses and others interested in the studies can ask questions, provide input, and receive regular updates. The goal of community office hours is to make it easier for community members to interact with the study teams – at a time and location that is convenient for them. Community office hours will be held twice per month in each area and locations will vary. Dates, times and locations can be found on each study website, as well as on ProPEL US 30 and ProPEL US 31 social media pages.

 

ProPEL US 30 and US 31 is an INDOT initiative to streamline transportation planning using collaborative PEL studies to consider environmental, community, and economic goals early in the planning process. Through the PEL studies, INDOT aspires to create smarter transportation systems that build stronger communities. The studies span 180 miles across 12 counties and includes US 30 from Valparaiso to the Indiana/Ohio state line (excluding I-69 and I-469 around Fort Wayne), as well as US 31 between Hamilton County and Plymouth (excluding the Kokomo bypass). Counties within the study area include Allen, Fulton, Hamilton, Howard, Kosciusko, LaPorte, Marshall, Miami, Porter, Starke, Tipton and Whitley Counties.

 

Once the studies are completed in 2024, INDOT will evaluate results to identify and develop projects along these corridors.
