INDOT Project Delivery During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Project Delivery During the COVID-19 Outbreak
On March 17th, Commissioner Joe McGuinness released the following statement about INDOT operations during the crisis.
“To our valued industry partners,
We have been receiving many questions surrounding INDOT operations, and I want to update you on where we currently stand.
Yesterday, Governor Holcomb announced additional steps to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the state of Indiana. Those actions included teleworking where possible for state employees.
As a result of this announcement, INDOT is implementing teleworking where possible, while keeping our operations open. State government is not shutting down, and neither is INDOT.
All construction and maintenance activities are moving forward, and we will manage disruptions in material availability as well as personnel as it comes.
We are actively encouraging our field employees to use best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including frequent, proper handwashing and social distancing (limiting meetings to no more than ten people and keeping a distance of at least six feet between individuals).
We are all in this together. As such, I urge you to follow all state Department of Health (ISDH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in your business operations.
All INDOT personnel will remain accessible and available as we continue to serve Hoosiers during this unprecedented event. Please reach out to your regular INDOT contacts with questions.
Thank you for your partnership!”
Joe McGuinness, INDOT Commissioner
