In late 2005, former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels launched “Major Moves”, an aggressive 10-year transportation plan to significantly improve and expand Indiana’s highway infrastructure. Major Moves is funded with $2.6 billion in revenue realized from the lease of the Indiana Toll Road. In addition to toll road lease proceeds, INDOT leveraged $71 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) to enhance and accelerate several Major Moves projects.

Major Moves called for 104 new roadways, totaling 1,600 lane miles, by 2015.

Impact of Major Moves Over 10 Years

Through Fiscal Year (FY) 2015, Major Moves accomplished the following - with no new state debt and no increase to taxpayers:

  • 87 roadways completed and opened to traffic
  • 480 new centerline miles completed  – 3.4 percent of the state’s inventory 
  • 60 new or reconstructed interchanges completed
  • INDOT obligated more than $3.12 billion in Major Moves funds for project construction, right-of-way, and consulting/project engineering

As of 2015, 97 percent of the major new construction projects started under Major Moves are complete or in construction. Major Moves projects underway in the 2015 construction season include:

  • Ohio River Bridges Downtown Crossing
  • Ohio River Bridges East End Crossing
  • State Road 641 Terre Haute Bypass
  • U.S. 33 Goshen

INDOT Achievements since the Start of Major Moves

Through FY 2015, INDOT has accomplished the following:

  • $10.8 billion invested in construction in both construction and preservation
  • 6,300 centerline miles of roadway preserved since 2006 – 49 percent of the state’s inventory
  • 1,400 bridges rehabilitated or replaced since 2006 – 25 percent of the state’s inventory

During the initial seven years of Major Moves, INDOT has invested, on average, more than $1 billion annually in Indiana’s transportation infrastructure, an annual increase of $250 million over the previous five years.
