According to state officials, the Community Crossings initiative has provided over $1 billion in state matching funds for local construction projects since 2016.

“Not only will this funding help keep Hoosiers safe on the road,” Rep. Tim O’Brien said. “But it also will provide a boost for economic development. Every aspect of our economy is affected by safe, reliable transportation infrastructure, and this money will go a long way to maintaining our proud reputation as the Crossroads of America.”

Communities submitted funding applications back in January. State leaders say those applications were evaluated based on need and current conditions and impacts to safety and economic development.

  • Dubois County - $431,129.37
