INDOT kicks off construction season

INDOT Construction season starts

INDOT plans to work on more than 900 road projects this year as part of the Next Level Roads initiative.

Gov. Eric Holcomb and state officials jumped started the construction season Friday during a groundbreaking on a $143 million dollar expansion of I-65 between Columbus and Seymour.

The governor’s initiative aims to have long-term, sustainable funding for the state’s infrastructure. Overall, $1 billion is being invested statewide in 2018.

“Indiana is one of only a handful of states with a fully funded, long-term infrastructure plan. And, we’re putting it to good use, not just for our roads and bridges—but also to attract more job creators to move and grow in our state,” Gov. Holcomb said. 

INDOT construction breakdown:

  • Resurfacing of 2,229 lane miles
  • Rehab/replace 613 bridges or culverts
  • 47 lane miles added
  • Chip seal 1,522 lane miles
  • 52 safety improvement projects.
