Smarter Transportation Builds Stronger Communities
ProPEL Indy is a unique opportunity for Indy residents to envision the future of our transportation network. This study will inform the next 20 years of investment in our interstates, as we identify ways to enhance the region’s overall mobility, equity, economic opportunity, and quality of life.
The ProPEL Process
ProPEL Indy is your opportunity to get involved and create a bold vision for the future of our urban interstates.
We believe that community development and transportation planning go hand-in-hand. The challenge is simply finding the balance between safety, mobility, and equity, while respecting each community’s unique concerns and needs.
ProPEL Indy will help streamline this process, as we further strengthen and modernize the sections of I-65 and I-70 inside the I-465 loop. This study will assess our aging interstates to determine what renovations and improvements are necessary to enhance our transportation network.
ProPEL Indy is intentionally designed to be more inclusive, open, and collaborative—so every Hoosier can have a voice in the process. Over the next two years, there will be a variety of opportunities for you to get involved, join the conversation, and share your vision for the future of Indianapolis.
This vision must still be actionable and practical. But we encourage everyone to dream big and imagine what our home could look like for generations to come!
ProPEL Indy is listening to residents across the Indianapolis region to identify opportunities to improve our transportation network.
The most important part of ProPEL Indy is listening to our community. We start every study from scratch—with no predetermined projects in mind. That way, we can collaboratively develop solutions alongside our community and ensure that equity is a priority every step of the way.
Throughout the study, ProPEL Indy will provide multiple opportunities for you to get involved, including online forums, public meetings, one-on-one interviews, and listening sessions to gather your candid feedback.
We want to hear from people all across the region with a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and opinions on how to move forward. So, by the end of the study, we’ll have input from local residents, neighborhoods, businesses, schools, religious leaders, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and more.
Your ideas and input will help us determine the best investments to improve our interstates, while enhancing your overall quality of life.
ProPEL Indy will result in a bold, actionable plan to modernize our interstates and enhance our community for generations to come.
Once complete, ProPEL Indy will release a full report that breaks down the results and recommendations from the study. This report will include a variety of potential improvements that work together to enhance our overall transportation network.
These improvements may still be years away. But when the time comes, ProPEL Indy will give us a strong foundation to build upon. Because smarter transportation builds stronger communities.
With your help, ProPEL Indy will create a strategic plan for the next 20 years of investment in our interstates—and a bold vision for the future of Indianapolis. In the coming months, we look forward to hearing from Hoosiers all across the state, as we build a better future—together.
