INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
Gov. Eric Holcomb says he has directed the Indiana Department of
Transportation not to include the Interstate 465 loop around Indianapolis in
a strategic plan for tolling along certain Indiana interstate highways.
Holcomb issued a
statement Friday saying in part that “to ensure there is no confusion, I
have directed INDOT officials to remove the I-465 corridor from any further
study.” He reiterated that during this year’s legislative session, he said
he didn’t consider tolling along I-465 or similar loops around cities viable
The study will
include most of I-65 and I-70 across Indiana and I-94 in northwestern
Indiana. INDOT said last week it also wanted to take a closer look at
possible tolls for I-465.
