Zionsville awarded INDOT grant to improve local roads

The Town of Zionsville has been awarded $486,562.71 from INDOT as part of the Community Crossings matching grant fund, an initiative that provides funding for local road projects. This grant will be used to fund five local road projects:

  • Repair and resurface CR 950 East from approximately the north edge of the Courtyards subdivision to Whitestown Road as a joint project with the Boone County Highway Department
  • Repair and resurface Oak Street from Quail Run Drive to CR 950 East/Sheets Road
  • Reconstruction of Parkway Drive in its entirety
  • Reconstruction of Brendon Way in its entirety
  • Repair and resurface Maxwell Lane

The local match is a 50% minimum match. The Town will provide a 51% match to grant equivalent to $506,423. “Since I expected it to be a very competitive grant, in the application, I took the approach of offering slightly more than the 50% minimum,” said Lance Lantz, Street & Stormwater Superintendent.

Contractors are expected to begin work on all five projects in spring of 2018.

In just its second year, the Community Crossings Initiative has awarded nearly $300 million in state matching funds to local governments for road construction projects. Local governments were eligible for up to $1 million through the program.

“The Town is very supportive of the Community Crossings program as it provides Zionsville and other local governments with the funds needed to make vital infrastructure improvements,” said Mayor Tim Haak. “This is an exemplary program that gets funds quickly and responsibly to local communities.”
