INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb kicked off Indiana’s Next Level Roads initiative and announced a list of infrastructure projects that will get funding in the coming years.

Holcomb and Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner Joe McGuinness hared construction plans for the first five years of a new 20-year program to improve Indiana’s roads and bridges.

“Our transportation network of roads and bridges plays a major part in Indiana’s success story both now and in the future,” Gov. Holcomb said. “With a fully-funded plan in place for the next 20 years, Hoosiers can rest assured that Indiana will remain the Crossroads of America for generations to come. I thank our lawmakers for their committed leadership to make this possible, and I commend INDOT for working hard to identify key projects so that we could be ready to roll with this five-year plan so quickly.”

The road construction plan for the first five years outlines approximately $4.7 billion in investments. Including resurfacing nearly 10,000 miles of pavement and repairing or replacing approximately 1,300 bridges.

Beyond the initial, five-year investment in statewide projects, the “Next Level Roads” initiative provides an additional $342 million annually to support Indiana cities, towns and counties for local road projects by 2024.
