INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — The Indiana Department of Transportation has unveiled the recipients of more than $100 million in Community Crossings matching grants. The funding, which is part of Governor Eric Holcomb’s Next Level Roads program, will support local road and bridge construction projects in more than 200 Hoosier cities, towns and counties.

In order to qualify for funding, larger communities must provide 50% local matching funds, while smaller communities are required to match 25%. Communities were also required to submit an asset management plan for maintaining existing roads and bridges. 

“Community Crossings is a major asset to Indiana cities, towns and counties as they build and modernize local roads and bridges,” INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness said in a news release. “The state’s funding partnership allows local partners to tackle larger scale project more quickly than would otherwise be possible, maximize their resources to complete more projects and achieve the best possible value for Hoosiers.”

INDOT says Community Crossings has awarded more than $930 million in funding since the initiative’s inception in 2016. You can view the full list of the latest recipients by clicking here.
