INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.  (Aug. 20, 2014) — The findings for the Purple Line rapid transit study will be released in public meetings starting today.

According to Indy Connect, the meetings will be held:

  • Wednesday, Aug. 20, 5-6:30 p.m., Forest Manor Multi-Service Center, 5603 E. 38th St.
  • Thursday, Aug. 21, noon-1 p.m., register for the webinar at indyconnect.org
  • Thursday, Aug. 21, 6:30-8 p.m., Gambold Preparatory High School, 3725 N. Kiel St.

According to Indy Connect, the study team will share information about people who live in the areas, roadway capacity, and the potential for new development along the study corridors (30th and 38th Streets).

“We’ve done research and technical analysis for the project, and now we need to make sure that we’re on the right track, in the opinions of the people who live in, work in, and visit the areas. Gathering and responding to public opinion is a critical part of the study process,” said Anna Gremling, executive director of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The Purple Line could serve key destinations like Eagle Highlands, Lafayette Square / International Marketplace, Healthplex, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana State Fairgrounds, the Meadows, and the City of Lawrence.
