Public meetings are planned starting next week to gather input for Indianapolis’ second rapid transit line -- the Purple Line.
“What we are hoping to achieve here is feedback and some vetting on a couple of different alternatives," says Indygo Spokesman Bryan Luellen. "So at this stage in the project we are looking at lane reconfiguration for the future purple line and station placement.”
The Purple Line is one component of the larger Marion County Transit Plan.
“Part of the improvement for this project is just really just basic infrastructure that’s going to address some unmet needs for basic infrastructure," Luellen says. "We are doing road repaving, we are putting in sidewalks, we’ll be adding drainage.”
The Purple Line will serve North Meridian Street downtown to East 38th Street and up Post Road into Lawrence. The first public meetings is Monday, July 10 at the city of Lawrence Government center.
Other meetings are scheduled July 11 at the Meadows YMCA, July 12 at CAFÉ on E. 38th and July 17 at Central Library.
All meetings will take place from 6 to 8 p.m.
