The Town of Bargersville has been awarded nearly $1 million in matching funding dollars for road and infrastructure improvements through INDOT’s Community Crossings Grant Program. The award was announced this week by the Indiana Department of Transportation. This funding round of the state-wide program will provide up to $101 million dollars across 241 Indiana communities. Of that amount, Bargersville will receive $999,750 for road improvement projects in 2021. “Months of hard work by Bargersville staff went into the application for this grant,” Town Manager Julie Young said, “We are excited about the opportunity to continue improving roads in Bargersville with the help of INDOT.” The projects include improvements to Baldwin Street (from South Street to Plank Road), South Street (from Baldwin Street to 250’ East of Carlisle Street), and a portion of Whiteland Road. “As the town anticipates growth and increased traffic from the I-69 expansion in the coming years, it’s more important than ever to ensure our roads are in great shape for residents and visitors,” Young said.
Bargersville must match 25% of the funds of the project. Construction is anticipated to begin and be completed in the spring and summer of 2021.
