The Indiana Department of Transportation will hold the first of two public meetings Thursday evening in Indianapolis to discuss the recently-released Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the final section of the I-69 extension. The document recommends a preferred route for the 26-mile stretch between Martinsville and Indianapolis.
The first meeting will take place at Perry Meridian High School from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. It will begin with an open house followed at 6:30 p.m. by a formal presentation and public comment period. The second public meeting is scheduled for the same time on Monday, April 10 at Martinsville High School.
INDOT says the 1,500-page draft document estimates the maximum potential impact that construction on I-69 Section 6 will have on homes, businesses and natural resources. It also identifies ways to mitigate any negative impact.
