Leising joins push to cancel Link 101 project

Updated: Apr 1

Decision could be made soon

(AURORA, Ind.) – State Senator Jean Leising is calling for the cancellation of the Link 101 Corridor Project. 


Link 101 is an Indiana Department of Transportation project to evaluate alternatives for a State Road 101 connection between the Markland Dam and U.S. 50.


Project officials say it would help with connectivity, travel, and freight movement in Southeast Indiana.

However, opponents fear the project would destroy farms, communities, and the small-town culture of our area.


"I have attended meetings and spoken with state transportation leaders to learn more about how this project could affect communities in my district since it was first proposed," Leising said. "While I have tried to remain open-minded on the matter, I stand with the many constituents who have reached out to express their concerns about how the project will impact our communities and their quality of life."


After INDOT cancelled a meeting scheduled for April 1 that involved legislators and local leaders, Leising reached out again on March 28 to request an update on the project's status. In response, a spokesperson with INDOT said they could not say whether the project is approved for construction or cancelled because they are waiting on the governor to make the final decision. 


“I seriously hope Gov. Holcomb takes into account our apprehension and responds appropriately,” Sen. Leising added.
