Logistics Road Map Released

INDIANAPOLIS -- Logistics experts and executives laid out their priorities Wednesday for how to build up central Indiana’s infrastructure. 

The plan was two years in the making, and at the top of the list: interstates. Especially I-69, says Conexus Indiana vice president David Holt.

"We need to complete I-69 the last length between Bloomington and Indianapolis, we need to make sure we have additional lanes on I-65, I-70 and I-69, our group suggests four lanes but three lanes is a good start," Holt said.

Holt says the plan looks at everything transportation-related, including how to fill the need for skilled workers, including cargo pilots, truck drivers and logistics planners.

"Air, rail, water, truck, warehouse distribution, the people who design and build the roads and highways and airports and port,"  Holt said. 

Holt says projects were prioritized based on increasing connectivity and decreasing congestion.

Next the plan heads to local officials who will work with the state to determine how to fund and complete future projects.
