INDOT to hold public open house on transportation plans May 8 in Hammond

Back To Front Page


INDOT will be hosting a series of public open houses to solicit input regarding the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is a federally mandated four-year funding and scheduling document for surface transportation projects in Indiana.

Project types include pavement and bridge facilities as well as projects addressing safety, congestion, mobility, and emergency response. In addition, the STIP also includes investment in alternative modes of transportation like transit, pedestrian trails, and bicycle facilities.

Only projects in which construction and operating funds can reasonably be expected to be available are listed in the STIP, which is updated every two years.

The STIP covers fiscal years 2020-24 (INDOT fiscal year is July 1 through June 30) and is available on-line for review and comment at

Comments may be submitted to the INDOT STIP Director via e-mail

Here in Northwest Indiana, a workshop will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 8, at Hammond High School, 5926 Calumet Ave. in Hammond.
