I-74 Business Corridor communities receive $5.4M in road infrastructure grants
The State of Indiana’s Community Crossings Grant Program has awarded $100 million to update roads in Indiana, including $5.45 million for the I-74 Business Corridor.
The funding, which is part of Governor Eric Holcomb’s Next Level Roads program, will support local road and bridge construction projects. The recipients were announced Thursday, April 29.
“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.”
The road and bridge projects made possible by the Community Crossings program will support businesses in the I-74 Business Corridor, which already boasts world-class transportation and logistical assets.
