The public hearing is an opportunity for interested persons to review the environmental documentation and related materials which include the identification of a preferred alternative. The public hearing is also an opportunity for the public to provide comments regarding Project 421 and have those comments entered into the official public record for review and consideration. As part of the public comment process, written comments will be accepted during the open house session(s) with verbal statements to be accepted during a public comment session immediately following the formal presentation. Verbal statements will be limited to two minutes to accommodate as many speakers as possible.

Project 421 is the study of the half-mile section of U.S. 421 through Madison that approaches the Milton-Madison Bridge, which spans the Ohio River between Madison and Milton, Ky. The purpose of the project is to select a route that best addresses the safety concerns, mobility challenges and pedestrian connectivity needs of Madison. The purpose of the public hearing is to offer all interested persons an opportunity to comment on the Environmental Assessment (EA) and the identification of a preferred alternative. In addition, the EA includes information regarding community and environmental impacts related to the proposed project including the Section 106 finding of “adverse effect”.

INDOT is soliciting comments for the Project 421 EA document and encourages the community to attend and participate. The public comment period for the EA begins on February 1, 2018 and will end on March 7, 2018. INDOT respectfully requests that comments be submitted or postmarked by that time.
