The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) project is evaluating alternatives for an improved State Road 101 connection between the Markland Dam and US 50.
The project is expected to improve connectivity in southeastern Indiana.
About the Project
Governor Holcomb announced $200 million in funding for the project in 2021 as part of a package of investments in southern Indiana to better connect communities and enhance commerce.
The project area includes portions of Switzerland, Ohio, Dearborn and Ripley counties.
The project will determine the alignment for the project including the type and width of roadway.
A timeline for construction will be determined at the end of the environmental study.
The Project Team will evaluate alternatives within a process defined by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The study will analyze the benefits, impacts and costs of the alternatives.
The NEPA process is a detailed study that is required for major projects that will include federal funding.
Identifying ways to avoid, minimize or mitigate any impacts is included in the study.
The final environmental document, which will respond to public and agency comments and identify a selected alternative, is expected in early 2026.
The Project Team will coordinate with local, state and federal officials throughout development of the project.
Input from the public is an important part of the project.
Public touchpoints will include a project website, social media channels, project text and e-mail alerts.
Additional touchpoints include stakeholder meetings, public meetings, a public hearing and comment period.
The stakeholder and public meetings will be held near key project milestones.
A Project Office is open twice weekly and by appointment.
