INDOT Awards Money for Infrastructure Improvements

The Indiana Department of Transportation announced the recipients of federal transportation funding to invest in local road and bridge improvements, sidewalk and trail projects.

This round of funding will help communities to design, develop and purchase land for projects for bid beginning July 2021.

In Winamac, approximately $1 million was awarded for sidewalk improvements in the downtown area as well as lighting along U.S. 35 and other locations in town.

The Town of North Judson was awarded just over $158,000 for the construction of an ADA ramp and sidewalk upgrades in the downtown area.

La Porte County will have $1.6 million for work on Bridge #186 over the Kankakee River on County Road 650 West. The county was also awarded $620,000 for an intersection improvement project on County Road 150 North near Lofgren Road and County Road 250 East.

INDOT dedicates approximately 25 percent of its federal highway funds to support local projects each year.
