Pence Receives Transportation Infrastructure Report

Share this post

Indiana Governor Mike Pence today accepted a 118 page report from the Blue Ribbon panel on Transportation Infrastructure detailing recommendations for Indiana's next generation of transportation infrastructure, including water, air, road and rail. The panel offered 25 recommendations related to priority projects, transportation funding, policy changes and strategies to prepare Indiana for future innovations.
Recommendations for projects with the greatest statewide significance that are in northwest Indiana including US 30, Fort Wayne to Valparaiso, and Port Bridge over the National Rail Corridor. Initiatives in northwest Indiana that involve seeking federal or state funding are Lake Michigan Harbor dredging and improved rail service to Indiana's ports. The Hoosier State Rail Line in northwest Indiana was listed as one of two passenger rail projects to be considered if circumstances justify state support.
The Governor will engage relevant state agencies, including the Department of Transportation and the Ports of Indiana, in evaluating the recommendations of the panel.
