Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb and Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner Joe McGuinness announced Tuesday that 214 counties, cities and towns would share $126.5 million in state funds for local road and bridge projects.
Huntingburg will receive $342,571.85, Ferdinand $290,037.18, and Jasper $264,162.50.
Jasper’s funding will be used for improvements to Portersville Road.
The project will include the widening of Portersville Road, the installation and replacement of storm sewers, and the installation of a pedestrian path.
The project has been planned in collaboration with Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools to be completed by the beginning of the 2020-21 school year. It addresses a major safety concern involving pedestrians/students walking along the current narrow roadway.
