Noblesville Awarded $900K From INDOT For Infrastructure Improvements


The City of Noblesville was awarded $920,715 today from the Indiana Department of Transportation as part of the state’s Next Level Roads: Community Crossings Initiative. The money will be used to resurface three areas of Noblesville.

“We thank INDOT and the Governor’s Office for providing these funds for infrastructure improvements across the state,” said Mayor John Ditslear. “This matching grant allows us to address a gateway to downtown, a minor arterial on the west side of the city and a heavily populated subdivision.”

Since 2016, INDOT’s Community Crossings dollar-for-dollar matching grant (up to $1 million) has awarded $500 million in state funds to support local road and bridge projects around the state.

“Indiana’s fully-funded, long-term Next Level Roads plan means cities, towns, and counties are improving their roads and bridges at levels unmatched in our state’s history,” Gov. Eric Holcomb said. “Community Crossings projects are crucial to first mile and last mile solutions that companies need when evaluating Indiana to locate their business or expand to create additional jobs.”

Noblesville’s three grants include 10th Street, Hazel Dell Road and Mill Grove subdivision – which total $1.84 million in investment. Each project is expected to begin in June and be completed by Labor Day.

 “Infrastructure improvement will be a major focus in Noblesville throughout 2019. This grant allows the city to go above and beyond our locally funded $2.6 million annual street and alley rehabilitation program to address even more roadways needing repair,” City Engineer Jim Hellmann said.
