Get Involved

The decisions we make this year will affect our state for generations. We must act now—before INDOT finalizes its plan with the Federal Highway Administration.

Here’s what you can do to help Rebuild It Right:

01

Get the word out.

Share the issue with friends and followers.

02

Write to Governor Holcomb.

Let Governor Holcomb know this issue matters to you by reaching out to his office.  Here are a few talking points to keep in mind:

A Call to Act Now
I am concerned about the reconstruction of I-65/I-70 and how it will impact my home, my community and our economy. Once INDOT breaks ground, it will be too late to consider alternatives. Let’s stabilize the North Split to address immediate safety concerns, then take time to get community input and establish a better transportation vision for Indianapolis and the State of Indiana.
Why I-65/I-70 Matters
This project is bigger than the Midfield Airport. Bigger than the Convention Center. Bigger than Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Bigger than Lucas Oil Stadium. It will define downtown Indianapolis for the next 50 years.
Concerns About INDOT’s Direction
The direction INDOT is headed would widen the lanes that cut through downtown Indianapolis and erect 25-to 30-foot walls around most of downtown. The effect on commerce and livability would be devastating.
Financial Benefits of Alternatives
Alternatives to INDOT’s direction could have significant financial benefits for Indiana. Preliminary estimates of new development potential along the I-65 north leg indicate up to $200 million in new assessed value—generating over $7 million in annual property tax increment.
The Long-Term Impact
In the future, this project will be seen as either a master stroke that spurred downtown economic development and job opportunities—or as a shortsighted quick fix to traffic planning that created barriers for urban economic growth and vitality.
