Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (Aug. 1, 2013) — Whitley County roads, bridges and highways will benefit from a $1,361,832 funding increase over the next two years, said State Sen. Jim Banks (R-Columbia City).

During the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly passed the 2014-2015 state budget, which increased transportation funding by $210 million per year. This includes $100 million for local units each year.

In total, the Whitley County region is slated to receive an estimated $5,386,260 in road funding over the next two years, which represents a $1,361,832 increase from its current funding level. It will be appropriated among local government units as follows:

  • Whitley County Government: $4,559,150
  • Churubusco: $118,084
  • Columbia City: $575,296
  • Larwill: $18,607
  • South Whitley: $115,125

“Reliable roads and infrastructure are essential to a strong economy,” Banks said. “This allows us to transport goods and services more easily, giving companies another reason to invest in our area. But beyond that, it creates a more cohesive community, connecting our families to the people and places that matter to them.”
