Infrastructure “Transportation Talk” – INDOT Open Houses

“Transportation Talk” – INDOT Open Houses

The following information is courtesy of the Indiana Department of Transportation:

Do you enjoy talking transportation? Do you keep a sharp eye on transportation related trends and innovations? Do you have thoughts and ideas you’d like to share with Indiana’s transportation agency about the future of transportation in our state? If so, the Indiana Department of Transportation would like to invite you to an informative open house session, where transportation-related topics will be informally discussed through old fashioned, one-on-one conversations.

INDOT seeks to have a conversation with Indiana communities regarding the current status and future development of transportation in Indiana, and our programs and initiatives. As a conversation starter, we invite the public to meet for “Transportation Talk”, an informal open house. INDOT team members will be available to talk about their respective programs while addressing questions from the public and soliciting input. INDOT will host six “Transportation Talk” events in June at locations throughout west-central, southeastern and east central Indiana.
