HEA 1002 boosted funding for roads and bridges
Currently, Indiana’s network of roads and bridges are in good shape overall. The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and local governments throughout the state work very hard to preserve those transportation assets and to expand the system where needed. With the passage of HEA 1002 in 2017, their efforts received a boost in revenue as well as several mechanisms for long term road funding. Today, the Next Level Roads initiative provides an action plan for keeping road and bridge construction on the move. However, current funding methods will be challenged in the years ahead.
