Several local city, towns and counties included

Local roads and bridges will be getting face-lifts in the near future thanks to a state-matching grant program. 

Governor Eric Holcomb and INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness announced Wednesday that 283 Indiana cities, towns and counties received a combined $100 million in state-matching funds for local road projects through the Next Level Roads: Community Crossing Initiative.

“Infrastructure plays a vital role in taking Indiana to the Next Level, and that includes everything from our interstates down to the last mile—including our local roads, bridges and sidewalks,” Gov. Holcomb said. “When it comes to building and maintaining our infrastructure, we’re in this together for the benefit of all Hoosiers. I am encouraged by the immediate impact of this program and look forward to hundreds more projects funded by Community Crossings taking shape in the coming months.” 

Locally, the following cities, towns and counties received funding:

JEFFERSON County $894,708.00,

DUPONT $165,188.57,

HANOVER $188,850.00,

SWITZERLAND County $566,600.99,

VEVAY $112,211.00,

VERSAILLES $260,825.25.
