252 Indiana towns receive funding for the construction of roads and bridges



Indianapolis, Indiana – More than $207 million will be distributed to 252 municipalities in Indiana for various purposes, including the preservation of roads and bridges, road rehabilitation, intersection upgrades, and other things.

The Community Crossings Matching Grant Program of the state provided the funding. Republican state representative from Rolling Prairie, Jim Pressel, asserts the importance of the upgrades. In addition, Pressel chairs the House Committee on Roads and Transportation.

“Not every town or city has the resources to keep up with the constant maintenance of local roads and bridges. By providing communities additional state funding to tackle infrastructure projects, we are making sure our roads remain safe and functioning for many years to come,” Pressel said.

Smaller towns and cities must match the grant with 25% of their funds, while bigger communities must equal the grant with 50%.

He said, “Hoosiers and businesses rely on safe and dependable roads. These state grants are a great opportunity for communities of all sizes to tackle much-needed road repairs and build for the future.”

Since 2016, the Community Crossings program has given local road construction projects access to approximately $1.7 billion in state matching money.
