In addition to public information meetings, ProPEL US 30 and US 31 study team members are visiting communities on a regular basis to hold office hours.  Office hours are informal, in-person conversations where residents, businesses and others interested in the studies can ask questions, provide input, and receive regular updates.


ProPEL US 30 and US 31 is an INDOT initiative to streamline transportation planning using collaborative PEL studies to consider environmental, community, and economic goals early in the planning process.  Once the studies are completed in 2024, INDOT will evaluate results to identify and develop projects along these corridors.


There has been talk for years of converting much of U.S. 30 into more of an interstate by reducing the amount of intersections and other changes to allow for faster travel across the state.
