Major Moves 2020 is Governor Mike Pence’s plan to invest an additional $400 million in expanding sections of four-lane interstates in Indiana.
In order to take care of what we have at a level of quality that Indiana taxpayers can expect, it is necessary for INDOT to invest approximately $750 million each year on bridge and pavement preservation. That level of annual spending, plus finishing what we started with I-69, the Ohio River Bridges and U.S. 31, will consume existing funding sources for the foreseeable future.
Governor Mike Pence’s 2014 legislative agenda proposed investing $400 million in expanding sections of four-lane interstates – two lanes in each direction – that are now approaching 50 years of age. The Indiana General Assembly provided the initial $200 million to widen and rehabilitate heavily-traveled interstates in 2014 and another $200 million in 2015.
“Our infrastructure makes Indiana a national transportation hub and a global distribution powerhouse, and it is one of the reasons Indiana continues to be recognized as a great place to do business,” said Governor Pence.
Interstate segments now under construction Major Moves 2020 are:
Most Major Moves 2020 work will occur within existing right–of-way, allowing the work to proceed quickly. Design-build contracts will be competitively bid later this year. This allows the design and construction to happen consecutively, rather than in sequence, speeding the construction timeline.
In most cases, two new travel lanes – one in each direction – will be built in the 60-foot-wide grassy median with a median barrier for safety. In some locations ramp lanes will be built along the outside of existing travel lanes.
