Dollars to be Used to Resurface Portions of 146th & 196th Streets
(NOBLESVILLE, APRIL 4, 2019) – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has awarded Hamilton County $719,285 as part of its Community Crossings Matching Grant Fund Program. The County will use the money to resurface various deteriorated areas along 146th Street, primarily the intersection of 146th and Hazel Dell Road. This funding will also be used to resurface 196th Street from Promise Road to State Road 13 in Wayne Township.
The Community Crossings Matching Grant Funds, which are administered by INDOT, will fund 50 percent of the construction up to the awarded amount. Hamilton County is responsible for funding the rest.
“We rate our roads on an annual basis and prioritize our resurfacing program based on condition ratings and available funding,” says Bradly Davis, Director of the Hamilton County Highway Department. “These roads have definite age and condition-related needs. This grant money will allow us to stretch our budget and do more paving.”
Resurfacing the various areas along 146th Street between Adios Pass and River Road, as well as work along the 5.7 mile stretch of 196th Street from Promise Road to State Road 13, is tentatively scheduled to start in August.
