Public meetings planned for Mid-States CorridorJuly 22, 2019
From Local Sources
Three public meetings are scheduled to keep the community informed on the Mid-States Corridor project.
According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, the corridor is anticipated to begin at the William H. Natcher Bridge crossing of the Ohio River near Rockport, and continue through the Huntingburg and Jasper area before extending north to connect to Interstate 69.
INDOT and the Mid-States Corridor Regional Development Authority have started a Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement, which is required by the National Environmental Policy Act for major construction projects that will include federal funding.
According to INDOT, public involvement is a key part of the environmental study process. The three public meetings will introduce members of the community to the project, explain the tiered study approach, describe potential preliminary corridors and introduce ways for the public to stay informed and provide feedback.
The meetings will be:
• 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 5, at the Washington High School auditorium, 608 E. Walnut St., Washington. Attendees should enter through Gate 4 off of Seventh Street.
• 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6, in the cafeteria at Springs Valley High School, 326 S. Larry Bird Blvd., French Lick.
• 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, in the cafeteria at Jasper High School, 1600 St. Charles St., Jasper.
Each meeting will feature an open house format. A short project presentation is planned for 6 p.m. each evening. Project team members will be at multiple stations to answer questions and comment cards will be available to offer public input.
Additional public meetings will be held at project milestones.
