INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Department of Transportation will present new details about the five preliminary routes for I-69 Section 6 from Martinsville to Indianapolis during a series of public meetings next week.

Officials say the meetings will collect additional public comment to help INDOT refine the five preliminary alternatives down to a smaller number of routes.

  • Monday, Nov. 30 at Perry Meridian High School, 401 W. Meridian School Rd. in Indianapolis
  • Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015 at Mooresville High School, 11 N. Carlisle St. in Mooresville.
  • Thursday, Dec. 3 at Martinsville High School, 1360 E. Gray St. in Martinsville.

Doors will open for all of the meetings at 6 p.m. with an open house session, followed by a formal presentation and public comment session in the high-school auditorium at 7 p.m.

INDOT says the public meetings respond to public requests for new details and additional public input following announcement of the five preliminary routes in late June. The new details will include the potential footprint of the five preliminary routes, including proposed interchanges and local access road locations. The public meetings also will present analysis of how the preliminary routes perform on impacts to the human and natural environments, cost, and the Purpose and Need performance measures.

Written comments, special accommodations

The I-69 Section 6 project team is requesting comments for this phase of the project by Dec. 17. Those comments can be submitted using a web form at www.in.gov/indot/projects/i69/2463.htm and by contacting I-69 Section 6 directly at section6pm@indot.in.gov or 317-881-6408.

The public can also visit the I-69 Section 6 project office located at 7847 Waverly Road, Martinsville, IN 46151. The office is open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be closed on state holidays.
