Thirty-eight cities, towns and counties across rural Indiana were selected to receive funding.
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Transportation announced today that $127.6 million in federal transportation funding is being awarded to 38 cities, towns and counties across rural Indiana to invest in local road and bridge improvements.
The funding also includes sidewalk and trail projects.
Locally, Dearborn County was awarded $1,932,000 for a bridge project over Ziegler Creek, which is approximately 0.60 miles east of Platt Road along Konradi Road.
For this latest round of funding, local communities will design, develop and purchase land for projects that would be bid during the fiscal year beginning July 2027. While the funds awarded now are dedicated to construction, INDOT will financially participate in design, engineering, and right-of-way acquisition components for some projects.
“Improving local infrastructure is essential to the constant growth of communities across Indiana,” said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. “Enhancing our state’s transportation network allows for continued economic success to follow and a better quality of life for Hoosiers.”
