Two tours are being offered. One is the DigIndy Tunnel Tour. Citizen’s Energy Group is constructing one of the largest infrastructure projects in the State of Indiana. They have already mined the entire first phase of the Dig Indy tunnel system, equaling over 9 miles. The tunnel is approximately 250 feet below the surface of Indianapolis, with a bore diameter of 20 feet, with a finished diameter of 18 feet, and will be 28 miles long when completed in 2025.
The new tour will offer a view of the second phase of the project that has recently started. You will be lowered 250 feet below the surface in a man cage with other attendees, and then brought back to the surface. An engineer from Citizen’s Energy Group will provide a verbal presentation on the project details.
The man cage will hold groups of 13-15. Citizens Energy Group is not allowing attendees to exit the man cage in the tunnel for safety reasons. All attendees must wear steel toed boots, hard hats and safety glasses. Hard hats and glasses will be provided. All tour attendees will be required to sign a waiver form.
Note of caution: if you tend to be claustrophobic, this tour might not be a good idea for you.
