(SEYMOUR) - The Indiana Department of Transportation will host an important open house at the Seymour District main conference room next Tuesday, April 7th, between 4 and 7 p.m. The INDOT facilities are located at 185 Agrico Lane on the east side of Seymour.

At Tuesday's open house, INDOT personnel hope to talk with--and receive input from--area residents, community leaders and transportation stakeholders regarding the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), a 4-year planning document listing all projects expected to be federally funded--and state-funded projects deemed regionally significant.

STIP projects include pavement and bridge facilities--and projects that address safety, congestion, mobility and emergency response. In addition, the STIP looks at investment in various modes including highways, transit, pedestrian trails and bicycle facilities. If a project is not included in the STIP, it cannot be eligible for federal funding.

INDOT personnel will answer questions and listen to public comments on a variety of topics such as planning, project selection, multimodal, highway safety, economic opportunity, Local Public Agency, public involvement and district operations. The April 7 open house provides an opportunity to meet with INDOT officials and program managers in an informal setting where discussion and conversation is welcomed and appreciated.

For more information, please contact the INDOT Seymour District Customer Service Center at (877) 305-7611 secommunications@indot.in.gov or the INDOT Office of Public Involvement at (317) 232-6601 rclark@indot.in.gov.

Other STIP open houses are scheduled at the LaPorte District office on April 9, for Greenfield District at the Indianapolis TMC facility on April 14, and at Ivy Tech for the Crawfordsville District on April 16.
