The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is hosting seven public information meetings as it continues the Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) studies along the US 30 and US 31 corridors in northern Indiana. The purpose of the meetings is to report on insights gained from the public thus far, share additional data gathered by the study teams, and provide an overview of needs and desired outcomes.

Public information meetings will be held in each of the four study areas, but those living in Marshall County that have concerns about either U.S. 30 or U.S. 31 should plan to attend the meeting that will be held in the Argos High School.  The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. and should be done by 7 p.m.

The studies span 180 miles across 12 counties and include 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. With help from Hoosiers, INDOT can build smarter transportation and stronger communities.

Individuals, city and county officials, business and industry owners, and representatives from the emergency services should plan to attend this meeting and be ready to share your views on the project to create the limited access highways.
