As recently announced, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is moving forward on three major projects that will follow the completion of several other recent upgrades to Indiana roads.
These projects will continue to improve safety and ease congestion on the roadways and will allow for faster movement of goods and services for 3PL’s with operations in Indiana.
The projects are as follows:
- New twin bridges over Ohio River from Indiana into Louisville ($2.6 Billion)
- Interstate 69 expansion construction (Phase 3) from Bloomington to Martinsville ($350 Million)
- Highway 31 from Indianapolis to South Bend, Indiana ($450 Million)
The continued effort to improve the roadways around the state will continue to make Indiana a regional leader for distribution and warehousing. Combined with Indiana’s recent growth as a logistics leader through competitive labor and low occupancy cost, further fuel savings through improvements in roadway networks will add to a list of attributes the state offers 3PL users.
In addition, safety is a growing concern and the improvements made by the State of Indiana will certainly help make our roads safer.
