All event locations are accessible by Route 39. Riders are encouraged to plan their trips using Google Maps, the Transit app or by visiting our website here.   

A drive-thru, pop-up event is also scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 17, from 7-9 a.m., at the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center, to share information directly with drivers passing through the future construction zone. 

“We are excited to kick off construction for this world-class transit project and are committed to helping individuals who live, work and visit the 38th Street corridor thrive through construction,” said Jordan Patterson, IndyGo Special Programs Manager. “These events will provide the opportunity for those who will be affected to ask questions, get construction updates and talk with our construction liaison.” 

Once construction starts, the IndyGo team will host virtual office hours every Wednesday from 5-6 p.m. Register anytime to attend here. 

The Purple Line is the second of IndyGo’s three planned bus rapid transit lines. The 15.2-mile project will connect Indianapolis to the city of Lawrence and replace and improve the existing Route 39. It is poised to provide better access to work, education, healthcare, restaurants, entertainment and shopping. It will also bring infrastructure improvements to the area, including new and improved sidewalks, ADA curb ramps, multi-use pathways, storm sewer separation and more. 

Construction is anticipated to begin mid-February, with the line opening service in 2024, pending any construction delays. Learn more about the Purple Line at https://www.indygo.net/purple-line.
