As part of INDOT’s commitment to public outreach and engagement, 12 public open houses are scheduled this spring to raise awareness of the STIP, its process and to solicit input from our customers as we meet with communities around the state.
During the open houses, INDOT team members will be available to engage in conversation, address questions and solicit input related to a variety of topics including project selection, multimodal, highway safety, economic opportunity, Americans with Disabilities (ADA) programs, Local Public Agency (LPA) programs, public involvement, district construction, maintenance, traffic operations and transportation planning.
Speaking of planning, INDOT has updated its long-range plan for improving Indiana’s Transportation System. INDOT’s Long Range Plan establishes a vision for future transportation investments, examining critical trends, challenges and future-year needs to provide Indiana citizens (Hoosiers) the highest level of safety and mobility possible to meet the needs of economic development and quality of life.
The Long Range Transportation Plan INDOT’s LRTP is a broad-based policy document that is used to guide the development of Indiana’s transportation system. The purpose of the LRTP is to assure that the transportation infrastructure network will adequately serve future 2045 needs.
Officials are soliciting public comment on Draft Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) 2018 -2045 and update to agency’s Public Involvement Procedures (PIP).
The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is a federally mandated four-year funding and scheduling document for surface transportation projects in Indiana.
