Note to the Press: Please include the following statement from State Rep. Peggy Mayfield (R-Martinsville) in your coverage of the Next Level Roads Plan announced recently by Gov. Eric Holcomb:

STATEHOUSE (July 14, 2017) – “Over the past couple of years, our area of the state has dealt with a significant amount of road construction. These projects are part of an overall effort to improve safety on our highly traveled roads, prevent everyday wear and tear on vehicles, and promote economic growth. Through the historic investment made by the General Assembly this year, Morgan and Monroe counties will be receiving nearly $300 million combined to invest even further in our local infrastructure over the next five years. This funding will go toward projects along I-69, resurfacing crumbling roadways and rehabilitating local bridges.”

Monroe County will receive nearly $10.5 million and Morgan County will receive nearly $287 million. 


State Rep. Peggy Mayfield (R-Martinsville) represents House District 60, which includes portions of Morgan and Monroe counties and is the Asst. Majority Floor Leader. She serves as a member of Ways and Means, Insurance and Public Policy committees.
