WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Indiana Dept. of Transportation is partnering with Purdue University and Cummins Inc. to build the United States’ first-of-its-kind segment of roadway that can charge both heavy duty and passenger electric vehicles as they travel at highway speeds.

Following multiple years of indepth research and testing, a pilot segment has just begun construction on U.S. 231/U.S. 52 between Cumberland Avenue and Lindberg Road in West Lafayette, near INDOT’s West Lafayette subdistrict office. The construction contract was awarded to White Construction.

The work involves installation of a dynamic wireless power transfer test site, the first in the nation.

Construction is expected to continue through the fall, weather permitting. Additional work is expected to last until May of 2025.
