STATEHOUSE (Oct. 5, 2016) – Boone County was recently awarded more than $2 million in federal funding from the Indiana Department of Transportation for a bridge replacement project, according to State Rep. Donna Schaibley (R-Carmel).

“These funds will help address some of our local bridge funding needs, as a strong infrastructure impacts our economy and jobs,” Schaibley said. “I will work with the General Assembly this upcoming legislative session to establish sustainable, long-term funding for Indiana’s infrastructure.”

INDOT distributed nearly $80 million in federal transportation funding to 64 rural cities, towns and counties to invest in local road and bridge improvements and sidewalk and trail projects. Combined with local funds, close to $135 million is being invested in infrastructure in communities across Indiana.
