Indy Gateway was a partner with the City of Indianapolis on the Westside Strategic Revitalization & Airport TIF Implementation Plan and subsequent action plan. They began working with the firm of MKSK to develop plans with a focus on the West Washington corridor in October 2017.
This process is organized focus groups that included neighborhood association representatives, business owners and other impacted government and community organizations. The completion of this plan laid out specific projects to be implemented in the coming years that will spur economic and community development for the area. Concurrently in March 2017, the City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works completed an engineering study of West Washington Street from Harding Street to the I-465 overpass. The purpose of the studies was to determine, from an engineering standpoint, issues such as drainage and easement that would need addressed to move forward with transformative infrastructure changes to the corridor.
