INDOT Continues Work on Vehicle Charging Plan

Last year’s infrastructure bill includes 100-million dollars to expand Indiana’s network of charging stations for electric vehicles.

INDOT is finalizing a plan on where to put them.

The money is Indiana’s slice of two-and-a-half-billion dollars earmarked for charging stations nationwide over the next eight years.

Indiana has until August 1 to submit its plan for approval.

Deputy chief of staff Scott Manning explains the bill requires the stations to be built along roads designated as “alternative fuel corridors” under an earlier law.

In Indiana, that’s U-S 31 plus all the interstates.
