Ultimate Interstate 269 - Indianapolis Outer Loop
Description Will construct a new outer loop around the Indy metro area linking cities further out that are seeing increased traffic volumes such as Danville, Avon, Plainfield, Lebanon, Westfield, Noblesville, Pendleton, Greenfield, Shelbyville, Franklin, Martinsville. The route would initially be built on the east side between Pendleton and Greenfield linking I-69 to I-70. This route however is proposed to have a larger scope to link the north east and south sides of the metro area. Indyroads recommends that the entire loop be built including the western side as well. This route has the possibility of being built as a toll facility to finance construction. Not sure what tolls if any will be charge or which sections would be operated as a toll road. Ideally Indyroads recommends that if tolls are needed that they be removed when the bonds for construction are paid.
Purpose and Need Route continuity, congestion relief, and completion of missing link of the interstate system.
