SPEEDWAY, Ind. -- The Town of Speedway has $172,234 to spend on improving its roads and infrastructure.
Speedway received the money from the Indiana Department of Transportation’s Community Crossings grant program, which is now in its second year and has awarded $150 million to Indiana cities, towns and counties.
Speedway plans to use the money for resurfacing and milling projects, as well as an ADA approved curb ramp.
The funds will be used to improve areas of 22nd, Auburn and McCray streets, according to the town managers office.
Rep. Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis) supported the legislation.
“With these grants, our communities will be able to fund critical local road repairs,” Behning said. “Reliable, well-maintained roads and bridges improve motorist safety and reduce traffic congestion. These continued investments in Hoosier roadways will help drive our local economies and maintain Indiana’s reputation as the Crossroads of America.”
Hendricks County will receive $670,000, and Marion County will receive $663,500. In addition, 14 communities were awarded grants:
