Q: Who is Fluor?

A: Fluor Corporation is an American-based, global engineering, procurement and construction management firm headquartered in Irving, Texas, which has operated for over 100 years. Fluor has been selected by Lilly to oversee manufacturing of the first Lebanon Plant in Boone County’s new LEAP District.

During the building phase of the project, Fluor and Eli Lilly together are dedicated to:

  1. Delivering clear and transparent communications to all stakeholders
  2. Minimizing disruptions to everyday life
  3. Adding immediate and lasting value to the local community through nonprofit engagement, legacy projects, and employee giving and volunteerism


Q: What can immediate neighbors expect regarding disruptions during Lilly facility construction?

A: Both Lilly and Fluor understand the impact site construction has on the local community, particularly to immediate, fence-line neighbors, and are committed to creating a safe construction zone for our traveling public and our workers.

Noise, dust and light mitigation will be considered during the project build. A lot of earth moving will take place in the early phases of construction, thus dust suppression will be a priority along with keeping the roadway clean. Project leaders consistently evaluate how to reduce increased construction traffic issues for neighbors and drivers, including staggered construction work shifts, dedicated haul roads and on-site or meal service delivery to reduce back and forth traffic.

Neighboring residents will be given construction liaison contacts for immediate concerns. Updates related to road work and traffic management will be communicated along with regular project details.

Q: What improvements are being made to accommodate the increase in construction traffic?

A: The Indiana Department of Transportation has several projects being developed to accommodate the greater traffic volumes involving the Lilly site and other LEAP-based developments, both during construction and once these entities begin operations. Some improvements include:

  • Adding a new exit at I-65 and West County Road 300 North
  • Upgrading the existing interchange at I-65 & US 52
  • Enhancements to State Roads 32 and 39 & US 52



Q: How will timely project information be provided to residents?

A:  There are a variety of ways in which the project construction team will be communicating to immediate neighbors and members of the public. The construction team has a dedicated Community Relations & Communications team who are responsible for ensuring we communicate well and are good construction neighbors. This group will use all avenues available to provide prompt communications, including phone calls, text messages, email blasts, roadside display boards, web updates, open houses and special events to relay near- and longer-term construction information.
