In late 2005, former Governor Mitch Daniels launched an aggressive 10-year transportation plan, known as “Major Moves,” to significantly improve and expand Indiana’s highway infrastructure. A total of $2.6 billion was committed to Major Moves from the long-term lease of the Indiana Toll Road and the plan called for 104 new roadways by 2015 with 1,600 lane miles.*

Major Moves In 2012

By the end of calendar year 2012, the following was accomplished:

  • 65 roadway projects were complete or substantially under construction
  • 19 roadway projects were accelerated – when compared to the original 2006 plan
  • 375 new centerline miles complete
  • 48 new or reconstructed interchanges
  • 5,030 preservation centerline miles complete – 40 percent of the state’s inventory
  • 720 bridges were rehabilitated or replaced – 13 percent of the state’s inventory
  • $7.5 billion invested in construction through FY 2012

In addition to the Major Moves plan fund, INDOT benefited from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Approximately $71 million of ARRA funds have been applied to Major Moves new construction, allowing for accelerated and adjusted Major Moves projects. Finally, no additional debt or increase in taxes has been incurred to complete Major Moves projects.

Major Moves Going Forward

By the end of calendar year 2015, the following will be accomplished:

  • Over $11 billion invested in Major New and Preservation
  • 87 roadways will be completed or substantially under construction
  • 65 new or reconstructed interchanges
  • 413 centerline miles of new roadway will be constructed - 3.4 percent of the state's inventory
  • 6,350 mile of highway resurfaced - 49 percent of the state's inventory
  • 1,070 bridges will be rehabilitated or replaced - 19.5 percent of the state's inventory  

Between 2001 and 2005, prior to Major Moves, the state averaged nearly $750 million for construction per year. Of that $750 million, an average of nearly $250 million per year was spent on new construction while an average of approximately $500 million per year was spent on preservation projects. Backed by Major Moves funding, INDOT will average more than $1 billion in construction dollars invested annually between 2005 and 2012.
