Governor Holcomb says Indiana’s fully-funded, long-term Next Level Roads plan means cities, towns, and counties are improving their roads and bridges at levels unmatched in our state’s history.
He added that Community Crossings projects are crucial to first mile and last mile solutions that companies need when evaluating Indiana to locate their business or expand to create additional jobs.
To date, the Community Crossings Initiative has given more than $500 million in state matching funds for construction projects. The latest round received 229 applications.
To manage the high number of applications, INDOT now accepts them in both January and July, with a $1 million cap annually per community.
An estimated $100 million will be available for communities that apply during the upcoming 2019 summer call for projects.
