Public input sought on Mid-States Corridor

Local News

JASPER, Ind. (WEHT) – The Mid-States Corridor Project Team is making it easy for residents to find out more information about the project and share their opinions.

Project handouts and comments forms will be available at several public libraries in the area.

People can pickup a handout, learn more about the project and leave their comments.

Project team members will pick up the completed sheets and consider all comments.

Earlier this month, there were meetings held in Washington, French Lick, and Jasper. More than 430 people attended those meetings and nearly 200 comment forms were completed.

Comment sheets include a map of potential alternatives and allow residents to mark their preferred path for the Mid-States Corridor or draw a corridor they think the team should consider.

The Mid-States Corridor Project examines the concept of an improved highway connection in southern Indiana. It’s anticipated to begin at State Road 66 near the William H. Natcher Bridge crossing the Ohio River at Rockport, continue generally through Huntingburg and Jasper and extend north to connect to Interstate 69.

The project materials are available at 17 area libraries and that information can be found on the website.

Materials will be available through Friday, September 20th.
