Greenwood, Ind. (May 18,2015)- The Indiana Department of Transportation is hosting a public meeting Monday evening to talk about the final stretch of its I-69 project.

Section six will run from Martinsville to Indianapolis, but the exact route for the road is still under consideration.

INDOT is expected to unveil some possible routes for section six at Monday’s public meeting.

The department held a similar meeting in February to get feedback from the public on exactly where the interstate should go.

Those suggestions were combined with INDOT’s own analysis to come up with some possible routes.

INDOT says its goal is to find a path that has minimal impact on the environment and the communities the road travels through.

Public input is needed to evaluate both those factors, according to INDOT spokesperson Will Wingfield.

“We encourage people not to wait at this process, attend the meeting and provide input as early as possible so that we can fully consider it and make those changes as early as possible and get the best project possible for the community,” said Wingfield.

Monday’s meeting at Center Grove Middle School North (202 N. Morgantown Rd. Greenwood) starts at 5:30 pm with an open house.

A formal presentation and opportunity for public comments will follow at 6:30 pm.

Another public meeting about this stretch of I-69 is scheduled for Tuesday, May 19 at Martinsville High School (1360 E. Gray St. in Martinsville) at 5:30 pm.
