New panel to plan Indiana's transportation infrastructure

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence last week announced the formation of a "Blue Ribbon Panel" that's charged with planning the next generation of transportation infrastructure in the state.

Panel members will review projects related to all four transportation modes: rail, road, water and air. Based on a set of m etrics to be developed by the panel, members will identify a list of prioritized projects for the next 10 years, said Pence in a press release. For the longer term, the panel will explore and monitor innovations in transportation infrastructure.

Indiana Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann and Cathy Langham — president of Indianapolis logistics service provider Langham Logistics Inc. — will co-chair the panel. Additional members will be named in the coming weeks, Pence said.

"With the expertise and recommendations of this Blue Ribbon Panel, Indiana will keep its finger on the pulse of infrastructure innovation and strive to provide businesses and Hoosiers with the most efficient transportation system available," Pence said.
