INDOT holding open house tonight at Columbus East

The Indiana Department of Transportation is hosting a public open house tonight in Columbus to get your thoughts on state transportation plans.

The agency is looking for input on the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program. STIP is a federally mandated four-year funding and scheduling document for surface transportation projects in Indiana.

Project types involving pavement and bridge facilities, projects addressing safety, congestion, mobility and emergency response can be found in the STIP. In addition, this document includes investment in various modes of transportation including transit, pedestrian trails, and bicycle facilities.

During the open house, INDOT team members will be available to address questions and solicit input related to a variety of topics.

The Columbus open house is being held from 5 to 7 p.m. at Columbus East High School.
