A new round of public meetings kicks off Saturday to discuss the North Split reconstruction project in Indianapolis.

The long-planned project is designed to improve the I-65 / I-70 interchange near downtown Indianapolis. The Indiana Department of Transportation says the interchange, which is the second-most heavily traveled in the state, has been deteriorating for years.

This is INDOT’s second round of public meetings to gather feedback on the project. This round is catered to a number of neighborhood groups, and will give the public a chance to see preliminary design concepts.

Construction is expected to begin in 2021 and could cost up to $300 million.

Saturday’s meeting starts at 9 a.m. in the Concord Neighborhood Center.

Two more meetings will be held over the next two weeks. The second meeting this round will take place July 31 at the John H. Boner Center, and the third on Aug. 8 at the creative agency Young & Laramore.
