INDOT Accepting Grant Applications for Road Funding


The Indiana Department of Transportation is announcing that the agency is accepting applications from cities, towns and counties for matching funds for local road and bridge projects.

This is through the Community Crossings matching grant fund.

On March 23, Gov. Mike Pence signed the grant program into law.

It provides $186 million in state reserves for local road and bridge funding over the next two years.

It also provides $277 million over the next four years by redirecting 1.5 cents of the gasoline tax over two years.

INDOT says $100 million in funding will be available each year going forward for long-term local road funding.

Road resurfacing, bridge rehabilitation, road reconstruction, roundabouts, and ADA compliance are all eligible projects for funding.
