Partners with Local Units of Governments to Plan for the Future
Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) stakeholders play a key role in influencing our agency decisions and practices. Intentional partnership sits at the forefront of our goals, influencing our agency to cultivate and maintain impactful relationships with external partners to drive success. Each day, our agency strives to enhance the ways in which we strategically partner and collaborate with our surrounding government entities, as a way to maximize the relationships we have within Indiana. Supporting economic development and quality of life is crucial in planning Indiana’s future. As we move forward to develop comprehensive plans for INDOT’s transportation network, we ask that you move forward with us. INDOT encourages your local government agency to submit any strategic or comprehensive plans that you may want to share to help us better understand your future plans or needs. These plans should enhance sustainability, resiliency, access, and innovation. Our agency looks to integrate these concepts into planning and decision-making to better deliver core services effectively and efficiently throughout Indiana. Locals can submit their comprehensive plans to INDOT by sending them to: LPACompPlan@indot.in.gov
