Cities, towns and counties can apply for money to fix local roads and bridges through the Indiana Department of Transportation’s Community Crossings Matching Grant Program.
The Community Crossing Grant aims to invest in projects that help improve economic development, create jobs and strengthen local transportation networks. These projects include bridge rehabilitation or replacement, road resurfacing and preservation and road reconstruction with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Each proposal is evaluated based on:
- Traffic volume;
- Local support;
- Impact on connectivity;
- Mobility within the community; and
- Regional economic significance;
Since 2016, The Community Crossings Grant Program has allocated over $300 million across the state. From Allen County to Daviess County, this funding has given many communities opportunities to make valued infrastructure improvements.
All application materials must be submitted by Friday, Sept. 28, 2018, at 5 p.m. ET. Communities receiving funding for projects will be notified by INDOT beginning in November. For more information, click here.
