The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) will hold a 30-day public comment period on its US 30 Corridor Safety Study. The comment period will begin on June 1, 2017 and end on June 30, 2017.

As the area around the intersection of US 30 and I-65 has developed and grown over the last 30 years, issues of congestion and suitability for all forms of transportation have become increasingly important. The corridor is oriented toward automobiles and is often congested and difficult for both residents and visitors to navigate. NIRPC, in coordination with the City of Hobart and the Town of Merrillville, commissioned this safety study in the interest of creating a safer, more accessible and multi-modal environment.

This study examines the current state of the corridor, including its current design and crash history. It then provides possible safety as well as urban design solutions. These solutions were shaped by public input at pop-up workshops as well as an online survey.

Comments can be submitted until June 30, 2017 in the following ways:

  • Email: comments@nirpc.org
  • Phone: 219-763-6060, ext. 160
  • United States Postal Service: NIRPC, 6100 Southport Road, Portage, IN 46368

All comments received during the 30-day public comment period will be compiled into a public comment report and responded to. This report will be made available to the public and distributed to the relevant NIRPC committees prior to any action.
