Governor Mike Pence on Oct. 13 unveiled his 21st Century Crossroads proposal, a plan that will make $1 billion in new road funding available over the next four years without raising taxes. 21st Century Crossroads would put INDOT on a path to resurface 16,000 miles of state highways and repair more than 5,200 bridges over the next 15 years.
The 21st Century Crossroads plan would continue to build upon improvements in statewide pavement and bridge condition, and would build upon the already $3.2 billion INDOT was planning to spend over the next five years on road and bridge preservation.
Since Governor Pence took office in 2013, state bridges rated as fair or better have increased from 93 percent to 95.3 percent, bringing it above last year’s national average of 94 percent. Under the Governor’s proposal, this would improve further to 97 percent in 10 years. Between 2012 and 2014, state-maintained pavement has improved from 89.3 percent in fair or better condition to 90.3 percent. With 21st Century Crossroads, this would improve further to 94 percent in 10 years.
More information about the 21st Century Crossroads program is available in the news release .
The 21st Century Crossroads program will invest $1 billion in additional pavement and bridge improvement projects over INDOT’s current and planned projects. To view a map of INDOT’s current and planned road and bridge preservation projects, click here.
