New Grant Money For Local Roads By Wendy McNamara


Our local roads and bridges not only add to our quality of life, but help support our economy. That’s why more than $150 million was recently awarded to Indiana cities, towns and counties through the Community Crossings grant program.

Several communities in our area received money to help with projects including road and bridge preservation, road reconstruction and intersection improvements:

  • Posey County: $572,228
  • Vanderburgh County: $444,930
  • Darmstadt: $430,628
  • Evansville: $463,987
  • Mount Vernon: $479,082
  • New Harmony: $157,492

This program was established by a law I supported in 2016, and the Indiana Department of Transportation awards grants based on applications submitted by local officials.

The Community Crossings grant program helps communities large and small repair and modernize their local roads and bridges. Thanks to Indiana’s strong fiscal health, our state is well-positioned to make these critical investments without having to pass on debt to the next generation.
