February 6, 2014
By

INDOT is awarding $86 million in federal transportation funds to rural cities, towns and counties. The announcement includes $47 million for road construction, $22 million for bridges and $14 million for bicycle and pedestrian projects. Over $10 million goes to recipients in southeastern Indiana.

INDOT has awarded local federal transportation funding to:

  • Dearborn County, $960,000 for replacing Bridge #24 on Cold Springs Road
  • Decatur County, $774,560 for rehabilitation of C.R. 1100S bridge over Sand Creek
  • Franklin County, $796,800 for rehabilitation of St. Mary’s Road bridge over Whitewater River
  • Franklin County, $65,280 for replacement of signage on county roads
  • City of Greensburg, $269,730 for replacement of street signs
  • City of Seymour, $648,000 for West 2nd Street construction from Springhill RD to Vehslage RD

Awarded rural projects would be designed, developed and have purchased land according to federal standards prior to bid during the state fiscal year beginning July 2016. Applications for those awards were due Friday, Dec. 13. In the near future, INDOT plans to issue a call for applications for rural local projects that would be bid during the state fiscal year beginning July 2017.

The state programs 25 percent of its federal highway appropriation each year to fund larger local transportation projects. Metropolitan Planning Organizations distribute federal highway funds to local communities within the state’s larger urbanized areas while INDOT distributes such funds outside MPO areas. To receive federal monies, communities typically pay 20 percent in local matching funds.
