INDOT released the following on Nov. 19, 2015:
INDIANA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
Public Meetings to Present New Details about I-69 Section 6 Routes; Open House and Public Comment Sessions Included
The Indiana Department of Transportation will present new details about the five preliminary routes for I-69 Section 6 from Martinsville to Indianapolis during public meetings the week of Nov. 30. The meetings will collect additional public comment to help INDOT refine the five preliminary alternatives down to a smaller number of routes.
The first meeting will take place on Monday, Nov. 30 at Perry Meridian High School, 401 W. Meridian School Rd. in Indianapolis. The second meeting will occur on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015 at Mooresville High School, 11 N. Carlisle St. in Mooresville. The third meeting will be held on Thursday, Dec. 3 at Martinsville High School, 1360 E. Gray St. in Martinsville.
Doors will open for all of the meetings at 6 p.m. with an open house session, followed by a formal presentation and public comment session in the high-school auditorium at 7:00 p.m.
The public meetings respond to public requests for new details and additional public input following announcement of the five preliminary routes in late June.
The new details will include the potential footprint of the five preliminary routes, including proposed interchanges and local access road locations. The public meetings also will present analysis of how the preliminary routes perform on impacts to the human and natural environments, cost, and the Purpose and Need performance measures.
