Take the "Put The Phone Down" Pledge
The Indianapolis MPO strongly supports the
Put the Phone Down Pledge campaign. It serves to remind all drivers that your life is worth it and distracted driving is not. Take the pledge
Pedal & Park
There are several events in the region that participate in Pedal & Park, which allows attendees to bike (or rollerblade!) to an event and park for free! These are great opportunities to demonstrate and benefit from the advantages of non-motorized transportation.

INDOT will be closing portions of I-65 and I-70 near downtown Indianapolis June 7 through June 10. All closures will begin Friday at 9 p.m. and lanes will be reopened by Monday at 6 a.m. For more details, click here.
