Howard, Miami and Tipton counties are receiving $1 million in state funding this year under the Next Level Roads: Community Crossings Initiative to build road projects.
This year, 189 Indiana cities, towns and counties received a combined $115 million in state-matching funds for local road projects, according to the Kokomo Tribune.
Howard County will spend the money for pavement work on 20 county roads which total dozens of miles. Miami County will use the money to help pay for paving projects and sidewalk reconstruction in the northeast section of Eagle’s Pointe housing addition near Grissom Air Reserve Base.
Meanwhile, in Tipton County, the funding will help pay for six projects, including over $740,000 for pavement work on 800 West from Division Road to 700 North.
