INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Department of Transportation says it used nearly $900 million in federal highway funding last year. If not assigned to a project by the end of this month, the money is returned and redistributed to the states and territories.

INDOT says the Federal Highway Trust Fund usually reimburses 80 percent of construction project costs, with the state or local municipalities picking up the remainder. Safety of interstate highway projects generally receive 90 percent funding.

The department has also released its annual report detailing ridership and assistance for transit systems in 67 counties it supports. In 2014, INDOT says ridership statewide increased, with more than 1,900 vehicles logging 45.1 million miles. Nearly $60 million of state-appropriated funding was distributed last year by the INDOT Transit Office.
