A State Road 101 extension will improve connectivity in southeastern Indiana and is expected to provide more direct access to I-71 and US 50. The project area includes portions of Switzerland, Ohio, Dearborn and Ripley counties.

Two public meetings – one in person and one virtual – will introduce the project, provide more information about the process and solicit feedback from the public.

Anticipated Timeline

Link 101 is in the environmental and preliminary design stage. The project will determine the Purpose and Need – the why – for the project. It will analyze the benefits, impacts and costs of alternatives developed by the Project Team.

The process of identifying a selected alternative is expected to take about three years. The timeline for construction will depend on available funding at the end of the environmental study. Any required right-of-way acquisition will not occur for several years.

The Project Team is coordinating with local, state and federal officials throughout the project with public input playing an important role in project development.
