If you live in northern Indiana or use U.S. 30 or 31, you’re being asked how you believe the Indiana Dept. of Transportation can help improve those routes. In a public meeting designed to get input Wednesday, people discussed the possibility of more turn signals or noise barriers, and whether U.S. 30 could become a freeway.
INDOT is holding what they call a ProPEL study.
“The name there is intending to help propel Indiana forward through smarter transportation and stronger communities,” said Will Wingfield, a representative of INDOT, who spoke to WNDU-TV at a meeting, earlier this week, at Oregon-Davis High School in Hamlet.
The U.S. 30 project includes likely improvements from Valparaiso to Marshall County and the Indiana-Ohio border.
The U.S. 31 project includes possible improvements from Plymouth to Hamilton County.
More meetings to get public input are planned and you can submit your comments at the ProPEL website.
The improvements won’t happen quickly. The study is not expected to be done for almost two years.
