The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is undertaking this Corridor/NEPA Study in order to assess the implications of improving east-west mobility through Danville and Center Township and to identify feasible alternatives. The Core Objectives of this project include the following:
This Study will also be coordinated with a concurrent INDOT study of S.R. 39 to improve its north-south alignment through this Study Area. Currently, S.R. 39 is routed through Danville. It passes through residential areas, and along the west edge of the business districts. It crosses the CSX Railroad on a sub-standard bridge. South of the CSX Railroad the S.R. 39 alignment is sub-standard. Alternatives for improving S.R. 39, including realignments, will be coordinated with this study.

Final U.S. 36 Corridor/NEPA Study Report
A description and comparison of alternatives with conclusions and recommendations dated December 16, 2004. Based on the study and the Public and Review Agency Comments, it is concluded that both the North and South Railroad Alignments are viable alternatives that satisfy the Purpose and Need of the project. It is, therefore, a recommendation of the Study that Environmental Impact Studies (EIS) should be initiated for both the North and South Railroad Alignments to determine which of these alternatives should be further advanced. The FHWA subsequently reviewed the Study and responded with a Study Findings Letter on January 31, 2005
