Opponents of Link 101 hold rally in Aurora

Updated: Sep 26, 2023

Residents fear the project would destroy farms and communities

(AURORA, Ind.) -- More than 100 people gathered at Gabbard Park to protest the proposed Link 101 project on Saturday.


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


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


There are currently 10 proposed routes that will be narrowed down later this year. You can view those routes here.


Opponents fear the project would destroy farms, communities and the culture of Southeast Indiana.


They held a protest in Aurora on Saturday as residents held signs that read "Homesteads Not Highways". Those against the project have also started a website which you can view here.


Link 101 officials provided the following statement to The 812:


We know some members of the public are anxious for more details, and we are reviewing all comments and input submitted so far. We don’t have detailed information at this early phase of the project.


The Project Team anticipates screening the preliminary alternatives down to a smaller number this fall and will share those results via the project website and at a public touchpoint later this year. More information will be known as the alternatives are developed further. We will continue to keep the public informed throughout the process.


A single, Preferred Alternative is anticipated with the Draft Environmental Document in fall 2024. The Project Team will take into consideration all comments received and responses to comments will be included in the Final Environmental Document expected in 2026.

Feedback is always accepted – and there are many ways to get in touch with the Project Team, including the Project Office in Vevay, by email, online and by phone. Visit Link101Corridor.com for more information.
