Major Moves is funded with $2.6 billion in revenue realized from the lease of the Indiana Toll Road. In addition to toll road lease proceeds, INDOT leveraged $71 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) to enhance and accelerate several Major Moves projects.
