Demonstrating the commitment to provide better infrastructure for rural communities in Indiana, the Indiana Department of Transportation has announced that the federal government is delivering $127.6 million in transportation funding to several projects across rural Indiana.

WIMS Radio details:

Types of projects receiving funds include 26 bridge rehabilitation/replacement projects; 11 resurfacing/reconstruction projects; three Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) projects that involve sidewalks, ADA ramps, and trails; and seven traffic safety projects.

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.
