City officials hope to secure new federal funds to make roads and streets safer.
Central Indiana has already seen an unprecedented number of traffic fatalities in 2022.
Anna Gremling, executive director of the IMPO, said the plan identifies criteria by which projects seeking funds for implementation will be measured.
“Essentially, it's taking data we already had, and compiling it with the help of the public and public input into one plan that lists and identifies a High Injury Network and lists several projects by municipalities in Central Indiana”, Gremling said.
The public can provide input on the plan.
“So, we had public input early on with a survey. But now we're asking the public based on their input originally, and based on all the data, did we get it right? Do they have any additional concerns about the plan, it will be a living document, we'll probably end up updating it next year as well, “ Gremling said.
Comments on the plan are due by 4 p.m. on Aug. 12. The Transportation Policy Committee will consider adopting the plan at its Aug. 17 meeting.
