Public Meetings and Outreach
PUBLIC MEETINGS AND OUTREACH
INDOT and KYTC are committed to engaging key stakeholders during the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation process for the I-69 Ohio River Crossing study. The Project Team seeks to proactively educate key stakeholders about the NEPA process and solicit their feedback during the process to help lead to an informed decision. Through public involvement efforts, INDOT, KYTC and the Project Team seek to build relationships with key stakeholders throughout the life of the project.
The I-69 ORX Project Team hosted a number of Community Conversations in April and early May, and again in January 2019 after the DEIS was published. These were good opportunities to answer residents’ questions and hear their thoughts on the preliminary alternatives, options for the existing US 41 bridges and the role tolling is expected to play in funding the project.
