The state will provide a wide-ranging picture of ongoing transportation projects during today's annual Indiana Logistics Summit. The Indiana Department of Transportation says improving infrastructure has made Indiana "the envy of other states." INDOT will update major initiatives including the I-69 corridor and Ohio River Bridges Project.
INDOT says Major Moves projects will open nearly 100 miles of new highways throughout the year, including the I-69 expansion, the Hoosier Heartland project near Lafayette and the Fort-to-Port project. He says state partnerships with communities or the private sector will be a future trend of how such projects are financed.
Spokesman Will Wingfield says the lease of the Indiana Toll Road has allowed for the state funding of a ten-year transportation program that has boosted the state's transportation and logistics industries.
