More than $600,000 in state matching grants will be used to bolster road and bridges in the two communities.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Dillsboro and Moores Hill received more than $600,000 in state matching grants to bolster road and bridge improvements, according to State Rep. Randy Lyness (R-West Harrison).

Over 200 Indiana cities, towns and counties received a combined total of $126.5 million through the Community Crossings Matching Grant program. The grants are made available through the Indiana Department of Transportation as a result of a law Lyness supported in 2017.

"Community Crossings grants provide an excellent opportunity for local governments to invest in their infrastructure with the help of state funding," Lyness said. "It is a program that shows when the state and local municipalities work together, we can make enhancements and improvements to our roads and bridges without passing debt to future generations."

As part of the program, Dillsboro received $232,964 and Moores Hill was awarded $372,278 for local road projects.

Lyness said grant funding can be used toward road and bridge preservation, road reconstruction, intersection improvements, guardrail replacements and signage. Smaller municipalities must provide a match of 25% in local funds, while large communities must provide a 50% match.

In total, more than $738 million has been distributed for local road projects through the Community Crossings program. 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. 

An estimated $100 million will be available for communities opting to apply for these grants during the July 2020 call for projects. More information about the program and recipients can be found at www.in.gov/indot.
