Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield) – one of the road funding bill’s sponsors – says he’s heard positive feedback since the measure passed.
INDOT says in a news release that the state expects to receive between $80 million and $100 million in federal transportation funding.
The money is part of a statewide grant program and will go toward rehabilitating roads in the downtown area.
The money comes from a statewide grant program and will go toward six local paving projects.
Gov. Eric Holcomb announced Wednesday road funding grants that total $150 million for local governments across the state.
The wear and tear on Daviess County roads isn’t caused by Mother Nature – it's the result of horses.
Governor Holcomb’s infrastructure plan dedicates some money to the completion of I-69, but it doesn’t address ongoing issues with construction of Section 5.
Over the next five years, the state plans to resurface nearly 10,000 lane miles of pavement and repair or replace approximately 1,300 bridges.
The increases include the 10 cent-per-gallon gas tax, which goes toward a road funding plan.
Communities have a lot of road repairs, and the new money won’t cover all of them. So local leaders now have to make choices.
