City of Anderson Awarded $1 Million In Road Funds From State; 4th Time City Has Received Award

 City of Anderson Awarded $1 Million In Road Funds From State; 4th Time City Has Received Award 

Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. announced today that the city has received notification from the Governor’s office and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) that the city has been awarded $1 million dollars in matching funds from the Indiana Department of Transportation Matching Grant Fund Project.

Broderick stated that the city, working with city engineer Chuck E. Leser, applied for the grant for paving Raible Avenue from 38th Street to Cross Street.  Broderick explained that this is the 4th time that the city has been awarded the grant.  The first award year was 2016.  Mayor Broderick stated that the city applied for the matching funds in January of this year.  “We are appreciative of the state once again selecting our application in this competitive process for receipt of these proceeds. Because of limited resources the award of these funds is very good news for Anderson.”   The city intends to match the funds with the required 50% match from existing fund the city has earmarked for paving.”  

Mayor Broderick stated that the $1 million grant is part of Indiana’s Community Crossings Matching Grant Fund Project. The projects submitted to INDOT for funding were to be evaluated based on need, traffic volume, local support, the impact on connectivity and mobility within the community, and regional economic significance.

The announcement of the INDOT award was made through the office of Governor Eric Holcomb and INDOT to Mayor Broderick and City Engineer Chuck Leser earlier today.

The Governor and INDOT Commissioner Joe McGinnis made the announcement of the much anticipated awards today at the Governor’s daily press briefing that he has been holding regarding the COVID-19 crisis.

Mayor Broderick stated, “This was especially good news given the current COVID-19 crisis.  It is a reminder, that as long as we continue to work together in mitigating the spread of this disease that we will come out on the other end of this in a position to be able to continue to make needed improvements to continue to move our community forward.”
