INDIANAPOLIS -

Indiana Department of Transportation officials will next month hold public meetings to update modifications made to the preferred path of the final section of the I-69 expansion. INDOT says the sessions in Martinsville, Indianapolis and Greenwood will cover a "refined preferred alternative" for Section 6 that has been reviewed by the Federal Highway Administration.

The initial preferred alternative was detailed in the project's Draft Environmental Impact Statement released in March and survey work began in May. The Indianapolis to Martinsville section will follow State Road 37.

I-69 Section 6 Project Manager Sarah Rubin says "the final refinements we’ll be sharing were based on feedback from INDOT planners, project stakeholders and the general public. The project team has worked diligently to incorporate that input into a refined preferred alternative that reduces impacts in certain areas while meeting the purpose and need of the overall project."

The meetings will take place at the following locations:

  • Martinsville High School, Tuesday, September 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Perry Meridian High School in Indianapolis, Wednesday, September 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Center Grove High School in Greenwood, Thursday, September 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

INDOT will take public comments about the refined preferred alternative until September 26.
