Senate District 7 Communities Receive Road-Funding Grants

BRIAN BUCHANAN

Communities in Senate District 7 will receive more than $3.6 million to improve roads and bridges through the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program (CCMG), said State Sen. Brian Buchanan (R-Lebanon).

The CCMG was established by the Indiana General Assembly in 2016, and aims to advance community infrastructure projects, strengthen local transportation networks and improve Indiana’s roads and bridges. Since it was put into place, the program has awarded nearly $500 million in state matching funds for local construction projects.

In Senate District 7, one county and nine municipalities received grants:

  • Boone County received $425,027.79;
  • Colfax received $88,452.75;
  • Dayton received $169,199.58;
  • Delphi received $907,300.96;
  • Lafayette received $1,000,000;
  • Monon received $273,995;
  • Monticello received $274,430.27;
  • Remington received $141,703.14;
  • Reynolds received $119,250; and
  • Thorntown received $253,953.75.

“Indiana’s economy is directly impacted by the quality of our state’s infrastructure.” Buchanan said. “The CCMG helps make sure communities across Indiana are able to complete the road and bridge projects that are most important to local residents and businesses. I look forward to seeing the positive impact the awarded funds will have in Senate District 7.”

Through the program, the Indiana Department of Transportation matches up to $1 million when localities invest in road and bridge repairs. Counties with populations fewer than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations fewer than 10,000 receive a 75%/25% match, while counties with populations of at least 50,000 and cities and towns with populations of at least 10,000 receive a 50%/50% match.
