FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is inviting the public to attend meetings concerning the future of the U.S. 30 corridor.

INDOT says the ProPEL U.S. 30 East team encourages the public to learn more about the Planning & Environmental Linkages (PEL) study that is offering solutions for U.S. 30 development and remodeling in affected counties, including Allen, Whitley, and Kosciusko.

ProPEL is a two-year study initiative created by INDOT to facilitate transportation planning to consider environmental, community and economic goal to build stronger transportation systems for the U.S. 30 highway. Regional officials say they are pushing for U..S. 30 to be safer and more efficient for passenger travel. Officials say that their biggest concern is the dozens of stoplights that line the highway, which they say slows traffic and causes more accidents.

INDOT officials say there are two days of public information meetings for anyone who wants to attend.

The kickoff meeting will be held Dec. 5 in Fort Wayne, followed by a Dec. 6 meeting in Warsaw. Both meetings will be held from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.
