INDIANA (WFIE) -  State leaders say 224 Indiana cities, towns, and counties that will receive a combined $133.4 million in state matching funds for local road projects through Community Crossings.

“The continued success of the Community Crossings program becomes more evident each year,” said Gov. Eric Holcomb. “Improving transportation infrastructure at the most local level makes communities that much more attractive for business and Hoosier families alike to connect and grow.”

Communities submitted applications for funding in January.

To qualify, local governments must provide local matching funds of 50 percent for larger communities or 25 percent for smaller communities and have an asset management plan for maintaining existing roads and bridges.

Locally, winners include $1 million each for Gibson, Perry, Spencer, and Warrick Counties.

It also includes:

Dubois County $984,801.42
