Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) is holding a 30-day public
comment period on its Regional Corridor Study (RCS).
The comment period
began on Nov. 17, and will end on Dec. 21.
The RCS is a
technical assessment of the major transportation network connectivity in the
Northwest Indiana region. “Improving mobility and connectivity is the main
goal of this study by providing new connections to existing or future
transportation routes across the region,” NIRPC said. “It also contributes
to reducing congestion and travel time on major roadways.”
“The focus of the
study is to functionally fill a gap between regionally significant highways
and local major and minor arterials,” NIRPC noted. “Currently there are 14
interchanges within almost 45 miles on I-80/94. Only six of them are
regionally connected, through major arterials, to U.S. Highway 30, the major
east-west connector in the region. The goal is to provide multiple direct
routes between U.S. 30 and I-80/94.”
