DNR Public Hearing for I-69 Bridge over East Fork White River

Permit Application FW-25881

INDOT plans to construct 3 bridges totaling about ¼ mile across the EF White River floodplain which is more than two miles wide.  The remaining roadway will be constructed on top of up to 25 feet of fill material.  This design creates a nearly two mile long dam and will raise floodwaters in the area up to a foot.

DNR will only consider comments related to the criteria used to evaluate a construction in a floodway permit as provided in the statute, repeated here:

     1.  The efficiency and capacity of the floodway;
     2.  The safety of life or property;
     3.  Fish, wildlife or botanical resources;
     4.  The cumulative effects of the above items.
