INDOT is making record investments to preserve and maintain Indiana’s existing roads, bridges and infrastructure.
INDOT’s priorities are “Take care of what we have,” “Finish what we started,” and “Plan for the future.” These priorities reflect the wishes of Indiana taxpayers, who said in 2011, 2013 and 2015 surveys that repairing and maintaining existing highways and bridges – taking care of what we have – are the most critical items for INDOT. A heightened focus on preserving existing transportation assets also represents the best use of taxpayer dollars.
In Fiscal Years 2017-21, INDOT plans to invest:
Regularly scheduled preservation and maintenance activities preserve and protect INDOT pavement and bridges, extending the life of these assets, and ensuring the safety of motorists.
Pavement preservation activities include resurfacing, crack sealing, chip sealing, pothole repair and storm water drainage maintenance. Benefits of pavement preservation include smoother ride, fewer construction delays, better appearance, greater value, lower taxpayer cost, and improved safety.
Preservation and maintenance activities represent a significant savings to taxpayers as reconstructing a road in poor condition can cost as much as 10 times more than work needed to keep a road in good condition.
INDOT manages and maintains more than 11,000 centerline miles of interstate highways, U.S. highways, or state routes in Indiana.
INDOT bridge preservation activities are designed to prevent, delay, or mitigate deterioration. Preservation activities include inspection, cleaning, bridge deck overlay, and substructure or superstructure repair. Benefits include a reduction in the number of bridges, large culverts, and small culverts with key condition ratings varying from good/fair to poor, and an overall increase in the percentage of bridges, large culverts, and small culverts with condition ratings of fair or better.
