Note to the Press: Please include the following statement from State Rep. Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis) in your coverage of the Next Level Roads Plan announced Thursday by Gov. Eric Holcomb: 

STATEHOUSE (July 14, 2017) — “Over the next five years, our community will have nearly 400 miles of road lanes resurfaced, 65 miles of new lanes added and more than 100 bridges rehabilitated or replaced. This is a significant amount of work being done in our area, and it is encouraging to know that these projects will be funded without creating debt or placing the financial burden on future generations. This tremendous investment will drive our local economies and help maintain Indiana’s reputation as the Crossroads of America.” 

Local County Funding:

Hendricks County: $123,995,529

Marion County: $251,206,319
