Stay Informed Throughout the Study

ProPEL Indy will result in a variety of improvements that work together to modernize our interstates. These improvements are still years away, but you can stay up to date on the study’s latest reports and results here.

Latest from ProPEL Indy

ProPEL Indy has spent the last year asking residents, neighborhoods, businesses, and commuters to envision the future of I-65 and I-70 in Indianapolis. During the study’s Visioning Phase, the study team received more than 1,100 comments from several hundred stakeholders who use, work, or live near the interstates. This feedback informed ProPEL Indy’s collection and analysis of data for the study.

The study team has released a draft Purpose and Need Report using this data alongside the public’s feedback to define the transportation issues, opportunities, and desired outcomes in the study area. A brief video overview of the report is available here. The full report is available below for your review.

Public feedback on the draft Purpose and Need Report is requested through June 30, 2024.

First round of Community Conversations

ProPEL Indy is a unique visioning exercise that will transform how we plan investments in our interstates over the next 20 years. Public and stakeholder feedback is vital to the success of the study. The ProPEL Indy study team is gathering public feedback throughout the planning process. The initial round of public engagement occurred from May 30 to September 30, 2023, as part of the Visioning and Data Collection phase of the ProPEL Indy study.  Below you will find a copy of the PowerPoint presentation that was shared during the first round of the community conversations, as well as a recorded presentation.

We will look forward to listening to a diverse group of stakeholders from across the region in order to gain a greater understanding of their needs and opportunities. With this knowledge and working together, ProPEL Indy will ProPEL us today while Transforming Tomorrow.
