Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Aug. 6, 2013) — Area roads, bridges and highways will benefit from significant funding increases over the next two years, said State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville).

In total, local governments are slated to receive the following funding estimates for road maintenance and expansion during 2014 and 2015:

•    Posey County – $5,392,923
•    Gibson County –  $7,465,654
•    Vanderburgh County – $15,265,077

These totals reflect a $7.1 million increase in local road funding for the area over current funding levels.

“Having driven these roads for more than 30 years as a truck driver, I can personally relate to the importance of quality infrastructure in Indiana,” Tomes said. “I can say I’m proud to have made road funding a priority this last session, and I firmly believe supporting our local roads and bridges will be a boon for our community development and economic growth.”

During the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly increased total transportation funding by $210 million per year, $100 million of which goes to local units across the state.
