Public Meetings Scheduled Regarding Interstate 80-94 FlexRoad Study

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has commissioned a Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) study to determine how to apply the latest technologies to cost-effectively improve traffic on Interstate 80/94 between Illinois 394 and Interstate 65 in Northwest Indiana so that drivers get less stop and more go. Public meetings will be hosted in October for public comment. A variety of Transportation System Management Operations strategies are under consideration including temporary use of shoulders, variable speed limits and ramp metering. There are two meeting options with one being Tuesday October 19 at 5:30pm at Purdue Northwest Campus in Hammond at the Student Union Library Building, Room 360. The online option is Thursday, October 21, starting at 6:00 p.m. via WebEx .
