Frankfort, IN – Frankfort City officials are planning a variety of road improvement projects that will be funded in part through the state’s Next Level Roads: Community Crossings matching grant. Frankfort was awarded $221,240 from the Indiana Department of Transportation, which will allow for pavement work on eleven city streets.
According to Mayor Judith Sheets, these funds are a dollar for dollar matching grant from INDOT, meaning the City will need to match these funds equally, with the local dollars coming from city resources budgeted for road repairs.
Street Superintendent, Jason Forsythe, said that paving and project-related work will happen in 2020, with the projects going up for bid soon adding, “We have to have our contractor secured by May 31 in order to start work in June.”
The Community Crossings Matching Grant Program provides funding to cities, towns, and counties across Indiana to make improvements to local roads and bridges. This program is a partnership between the Indiana Department of Transportation and Indiana communities to invest in infrastructure projects that advance economic development, job creation, and local transportation.
