INDIANAPOLIS - Governor Eric Holcomb and Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner Mike Smith today announced 224 Indiana cities, towns, and counties received a combined $107.8 million in state matching funds for local road projects through Community Crossings.

Local cities, towns and counties receiving funding include:

  • Aurora - $490,985.73
  • Batesville - $789,866.25
  • Franklin County - $607,854.51
  • Ohio County - $1,000,000
  • Patriot - $43,200.00
  • Ripley County - $493,532.98
  • Rising Sun - $43,409.25
  • Switzerland County - $415,421.62
  • Versailles - $346,823.46

The Community Crossings initiative has provided more than $1 billion in state matching funds for local construction projects since 2016. Applications were evaluated based on need and current conditions and impacts to safety and economic development.

To qualify for funding, local governments must provide local matching funds of 50 percent for larger communities or 25 percent for smaller communities and have an asset management plan for maintaining existing roads and bridges. State law requires annually that 50 percent of the available matching funds be awarded to communities within counties with a population of 50,000 or fewer.

“Continuing to modernize and enhance our transportation infrastructure is critical to the economic success in and around our incredible communities and ultimately Hoosiers’ prosperity itself," Gov. Holcomb said. "Community Crossings makes immediate impacts on improving local roads and bridges across Indiana. Those improvements translate to a safe, reliable, robust transportation infrastructure that benefits residents and business in every corner of our state and every place in between.”

The next call for projects will open in July 2022.
