Clarksville Awarded Nearly $893,000 in Grant Funds for Road Paving


BRAZIL, IN (April 10, 2024) – Governor Eric Holcomb and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) gathered today at the Clay County Courthouse with cities, towns, and counties from across west central Indiana receiving portions of the $207 million awarded through the Community Crossings matching grant program, a component of Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Roads program.

“Year after year Indiana’s local Community Crossings program enables hundreds of critically important infrastructure improvements to happen,” said Gov. Holcomb. “I cannot overstate the transformative significance of this program and the positive impacts it has throughout our cities, towns and counties across the Hoosier State known as the Crossroads of America.”

Communities submitted applications for funding during a highly competitive call for projects in January.  Clarksville Public Works Director Brad Cummings submitted an application to help fund additional paving of streets and roads throughout the town.  His hard work paid off as the Town of Clarksville was awarded $892,789.42.  Cummings says the matching funding basically doubled the town’s paving budget for the year.  A list of roadways to be paved will be released in the coming days.

Clarksville wasn’t the only local community to receive grants funding.  Clark County, Harrison County, Jeffersonville, and New Albany were also awarded large grants.  Funding for Community Crossings comes from the state’s local road and bridge matching grant fund. The Community Crossings initiative has provided nearly $1.7 billion in state matching funds for local road improvement projects since 2016.
