County’s road fund to see $1.36M boost

August 2, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Whitley County roads, bridges and highways will benefit from a $1.36 million increase in road funding.

According to Indiana State Senator Jim Banks, the increase was in place July 1, but will occur during the next two years.

“Reliable roads and infrastructure are essential to a strong economy,” Banks said. “This allows us to transport goods and services more easily.”

During the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly passed the 2014-15 budget for the state of Indiana which allowed an increase of $210 million in the transportation fund. This includes $100 million for local units each year.
