Governor Holcomb and INDOT awards more than $100 million through Community Crossings
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Governor Eric Holcomb and Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner Joe McGuinness announced today that 218 Indiana cities, towns, and counties will receive a combined $100.2 million in state matching funds for local road projects through Community Crossings, a component of the Governor’s Next Level Roads program.
“Superior transportation infrastructure – from interstates to local roads and everything connecting in between – make our communities safer, attractive places to do business and create jobs," Governor Holcomb said.
The Community Crossings initiative has provided more than $931 million in state matching funds for local construction projects since 2016.
Communities submitted applications for funding during a highly competitive call for projects held in January.
Applications were evaluated based on need, or current conditions, and impacts to safety and economic development.
“Community Crossings is a major asset to Indiana cities, towns and counties as they build and modernize local roads and bridges,” INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness said.
The list of all communities receiving matching funds in the 2021 winter/spring call for projects is online at https://www.in.gov/indot/2390.htm?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
The next call for projects in Community Crossings will open in July 2021.
