City receives $600K grant to pave roads

The city of South Bend has received nearly $600,000 through Indiana’s Community Crossings Matching Grant. The grant money, and matching funds from the city, will be used to pave 10 lane miles and update cross ramps to ADA standards.

The grant is a partnership with the Indiana Department of Transportation to invest in infrastructure projects that spur economic development, create jobs and strengthen local transportation networks, according to the city.

The four roads to be paved include:

  • Corby Boulevard from Ironwood Drive to Manchester Drive
  • Jefferson Boulevard from Ironwood Drive to Logan Street
  • Linden Avenue from Mayflower Road to Lombardy Drive
  • Riverside Drive from Angela Boulevard to Academy Place

“We welcome this additional funding, while continuing to seek new funding sources to keep pace with road improvement needs,” said Mayor Pete Buttigieg in a press release. “I encourage state and federal leaders to continue boosting investment so that South Bend and other cities can maintain safe, smooth, and sustainable streets for residents.”

Work is expected to begin in the summer.
