INDOT marked the end of its first 100 years in July 2019, a milestone that celebrated the awarding of the first state highway contracts by the Indiana State Highway Commission, the predecessor to the Indiana Department of Transportation.
Since 1919, Indiana’s network of interstate highways, U.S. routes and state roads has grown to include more than 29,000 total roadway lane miles and 5,700 bridges. Road construction and maintenance techniques and technology have changed dramatically over the past century.
