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. Johnny Nugent (R-Lawrenceburg).

In total, local counties and municipalities are slated to receive the following allocations, which represent an increase from current funding levels:

• Bartholomew County: $8,991,039 ($2,272,951 increase)
• Dearborn County: $5,375,429 ($1,359,053 increase)
• Decatur County: $5,316,234 ($1,344,105 increase)
• Jackson County: $6,805,267 ($1,720,530 increase)
• Jennings County: $4,994,897 ($1,262,933 increase)
• Ohio County: $1,327,053 ($335,534 increase)
• Ripley County: $5,811,194 ($1,469,266 increase)

“These funds will offer our local governments’ means for much-needed projects on our rural roads and infrastructure,” Nugent said. “Dependable infrastructure is vital to a strong community, and making the investment now will create an environment for a successful future.” 

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