TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — The City of Terre Haute and Vigo County have each been awarded Community Crossing funds from the Indiana Department of Transportation.

Terre Haute was awarded $829,983.69 and Vigo County was awarded $959,337.85. The Community Crossing Grant Program is designed to fund improvements of local roads and bridges for Indiana cities, towns and counties.

“Road infrastructure is a very important quality of life aspect for our residents. As we compete for current and future business development, our roadways serve as a distinction in how we maintain and move our city forward.”

The City of Terre Haute and Vigo County have both actively been working to maintain road maintenance, prioritizing driver and pedestrian safety.

“INDOT has always been a great partner to our region,” states Senator Jon Ford. “It’s extremely encouraging that both Terre Haute and Vigo County received funds for these important improvements.”

These improvements will enhance economic development, job growth and efficient transportation for our city, county and state.

“We are glad to see Vigo County recognized as a recipient for these funds and we were pro-active in assuring the matching funds were available to move this grant opportunity forward. Although we were hopeful, it was certainly great news to learn Vigo County was on the State’s priority list,” states Vigo County Commissioner Brad Anderson.

Upcoming road closures and improvements will be announced in the future.
