Infrastructure Projects to Improve Roads, Bridges
The Indiana Department of Transportation announced $162 million in federal transportation funding is being awarded to 50 cities, towns, and counties in rural Indiana. INDOT says the funding will help the communities invest in local road and bridge improvements, as well as sidewalk projects for improved pedestrian access.
For the latest round of funding, rural communities will design, develop and purchase land for projects that would be bid during the fiscal year beginning July 2027.
INDOT says it dedicates about 25% of its federal highway funds to support local projects each year. Metropolitan Planning Organizations distribute the funds, and communities must contribute at least 20% in local matching funds and meet other federal requirements to receive the funding.
