I thought that many of you may be interested in the information below and maybe “attending” one of these meetings, especially if you live or work close to Rockville Road. The Modern Rockville Road project is for the section of Rockville Road from I-465 west to Raceway Road, about three miles. This is a great opportunity to learn more about this project, ask questions, and listen to others. Check out what INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) sent out and feel free to share it with others in the area.

Modern Rockville Road
Save the Date! Virtual public meetings scheduled Jan. 21 for Rockville Road improvement options
INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 13, 2021) – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is nearing completion of the assessment phase for the Modern Rockville Road project and has scheduled virtual public meetings to present potential solutions.
INDOT launched the Modern Rockville Road project in 2020 to gather information about nearly three miles of Rockville Road between Raceway Road and I-465. Two public questionnaires collected information about issues facing Rockville Road and potential solutions to the public’s top issues.
Date for a January 21
virtual public meeting
Virtual public involvement
Due to ongoing health and safety issues related to COVID-19, there will be multiple virtual opportunities for the public to learn about the potential road improvements and provide feedback to the project team.
Two virtual public meetings will be held using Zoom at 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21. Modern Rockville Road project managers will present the same information during both sessions and answer questions from the public following each presentation.

More information about the potential design solutions and ways to provide input will be posted to ModernRockville.com the week of Jan. 18 prior to the virtual public meetings. The public will have 30 days to provide comments.
For those unable to attend, a recording of the virtual meeting will also be posted to the project website starting the following day.
INDOT’s project team will review public input collected from this third round of public involvement and recommend one design solution later this year before a public hearing. The project is scheduled to begin construction starting in 2023.
