Governor Eric Holcomb and the Indiana Department of Transportation kicked off Indiana's Next Level Roads initiative on Thursday and revealed which road projects are planned over the next few years.

The initiative includes projects that will preserve existing roads and bridges as well as complete current projects.

The state will invest $4.7 billion in the projects over the next five years.

“Our transportation network of roads and bridges plays a major part in Indiana’s success story both now and in the future,” Gov. Holcomb said. “With a fully-funded plan in place for the next 20 years, Hoosiers can rest assured that Indiana will remain the Crossroads of America for generations to come. I thank our lawmakers for their committed leadership to make this possible, and I commend INDOT for working hard to identify key projects so that we could be ready to roll with this five-year plan so quickly.”
