(SEYMOUR) - The Indiana Department of Transportation is awarding $102 million in federal transportation funding to cities, towns and counties across the state.
The announcement was made today for these specific types of local projects.
$70 million--Road Construction
$17 million--Bridge Construction
$12 million--Bicycle & Pedestrian Facilities
Nearly $3 million--Safety Projects
A complete listing of awarded projects is at: www.in.gov/indot/files/LPA_2018Awards.pdf
INDOT sets aside 25 percent of the federal highway funds appropriated by Congress each year to fund larger local transportation projects. Metropolitan Planning Organizations distribute federal road, bridge and safety funds to local communities within the state's larger urbanized areas. INDOT distributes these funds outside MPO areas. In addition, INDOT distributes Transportation Alternatives funding for non-motorized projects such as trails and Safe Routes to School projects.
To receive federal funding, communities must pay at least 20 percent in local matching funds and meet other federal requirements.
More than $15.5 million is being made available for local projects within the INDOT Seymour District.
