The Indianapolis International Airport (IND) earned an Envision Platinum award for their Runway 5R-23L & Taxiway D Strengthening and Capacity Enhancement Project. Envision Platinum is the highest award level provided by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) for projects that significantly contribute to sustainability and resiliency.
