STATEHOUSE (Dec. 5, 2018) — Middlebury received $1 million in state matching grants to improve roads and bridges, according to State Rep. Christy Stutzman (R-Middlebury).

Established in 2016, the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program has awarded nearly $400 million in state funds to local projects around the state on a 50/50 matching basis.

“Investing in infrastructure projects that catalyze economic development, create jobs and strengthen local transportation networks is essential to the growth of our community,” Stutzman said. “It’s my hope that this funding will serve as a driving force in bolstering the structural integrity of Middlebury’s infrastructure.”                

 Stutzman said projects eligible for funding through Community Crossings include road resurfacing and preservation, and bridge rehabilitation or replacement.

 A complete list of Indiana cities, towns and counties receiving matching funds can be found by visiting www.in.gov/indot/communitycrossings.

 The Indiana Department of Transportation will be accepting the next round of applications in January.
