[s44] Sen. Steele: Local Roads to See Significant Funding Increases
Start Date: 8/7/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 8/7/2013
Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Aug. 7, 2013) — Area roads, bridges and highways will benefit from significant funding increases over the next two years, said State Sen. Brent Steele (R-Bedford).

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

•    Bartholomew County – $8,991,039
•    Brown County –  $2,855,434
•    Jackson County – $6,805,267
•    Lawrence County – $6,271,731
•    Monroe County – $12,183,660

These totals reflect a $9.38 million increase in local road funding for the area over current funding levels.

“Our area is home to many great employers, universities and beautiful travel destinations, all of which rely on first-class roads and bridges,” Steele said. “This new funding will help local counties make needed improvements to our transportation network so that our communities can keep growing and improving.”

During the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly increased total transportation funding by reallocating 1 percent of Indiana’s sales tax revenue to the Motor Vehicle Highway Fund, and by replacing the Highway Fund appropriation for the State Police and the Bureau of Motor Vehicles with state General Fund dollars. This resulted in a $210 million increase in statewide road funding, with $100 million going to local units.

Distribution of the new local funds began in August and will continue monthly, through Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015.
