The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) is holding a 30-day public comment period on NIRPC's Regional Corridor Study (RCS). The comment period began on November 17, 2016 and end on December 21, 2016.
The Regional Corridors Study (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. It also contribute 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. Currently there are 14 interchanges within almost 45 miles on Interstate 80/94. Only 6 of them are regionally connected, through major arterials, to US 30 the major east-west connector in the region. The goal is to provide multiple direct routes between US 30 and Interstate 80/94.
Comments can also be submitted until December 16, 2016 in the following ways:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phone: 219-763-6060, ext. 160
- United States Postal Service: NIRPC, 6100 Southport Road, Portage, IN 46368
All comments received during the 30-day public comment period will be compiled into a public comment report and responded to. This report will be made available to the public and distributed to the relevant NIRPC committees prior to any action on these items.
