Holcomb: Leave I-465 Out Of Interstate Tolling Study

Some legislators are hoping the fund can be used to reduce congestion on Interstate 465.

Gov. Eric Holcomb says he has directed the Indiana Department of Transportation not to include the Interstate 465 loop around Indianapolis in a strategic plan for tolling along certain Indiana interstate highways.

Holcomb issued a statement Friday saying in part that “to ensure there is no confusion, I have directed INDOT officials to remove the I-465 corridor from any further study.” He reiterated that during this year’s legislative session, he said he didn’t consider tolling along I-465 or similar loops around cities viable options.

The study will include most of I-65 and I-70 across Indiana and I-94 in northwestern Indiana. INDOT said last week it also wanted to take a closer look at possible tolls for I-465.
