Public Participation Needed On INDOT 2021 Planning Public Involvement Plan

(INDIANAPOLIS) – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is in the process of updating its Planning Public Involvement Plan (PPIP). Public participation or involvement in transportation decision making is an integral component of INDOT planning process.

INDOT’s PPIP provides opportunities for early and continuing engagement of the public, community stakeholders, and various transportation planning partners throughout the state in the development of transportation plans and programs. The PPIP lays out the fundamental requirements for public involvement, established by federal and state law, by regulation and by INDOT policies to ensure a transparent and sufficient public engagement.

The PPIP requires joint approval with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) following a minimum 45-day public comment and document review period.

Visit the INDOT Public Involvement Website to review the draft PPIP and provide your comments. The public comment period will be open from December 9, 2020 – January 28, 2021.
