[s32] Sen. Pat Miller: INDOT to Construct Sound Barriers Along I-65

Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (May 1, 2013) – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) recently announced plans to construct sound barriers along I-65 at I-465. State Sen. Pat Miller (R-Indianapolis) said the announcement comes after several months of work with local advocates, INDOT officials and other state lawmakers to advance this important community initiative.

“This will be a significant improvement for Hoosiers living on the Southside of Indianapolis who are affected by excessive noise coming from I-65, especially considering the new lane expansions that are planned for the area,” Miller said. “I’m grateful to my colleagues in the House and Senate, as well as INDOT, for making this issue a priority.”

INDOT plans to conduct a special letting for contractors for construction of the sound barriers in 2014, which INDOT officials believe will be the most cost-effective method to complete the project. The project will be carried out with funds from INDOT’s agency budget, which are appropriated by the General Assembly. A public hearing will be held later this year to go over the proposed barriers and construction plans.

Miller said Sen. Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville) as well as Reps. Cindy Kirchhofer (R-Beech Grove) and Mike Speedy (R-Indianapolis) also worked on this project.
