Coming Monday: Governor to detail road projects for Fort Wayne area

Posted: Updated:
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA 21) -

Come Monday, northeast Indiana should have a better idea of exactly how the state will direct hundreds of millions of dollars in road improvement funds to area highways.

Gov. Eric Holcomb will be in Fort Wayne to explain construction plans for the next five years, and to detail how new funding will improve infrastructure in this part of Indiana.

His appearance follows the release of the county-by-county project list. That list offers a time line and cost of road and bridge improvements across the state.

In Allen County alone, more than $83 million is pledged over the 5-year span. Huntington County and Steuben County are earmarked for $32 million and Dekalb County for $34 million.

Holcomb will speak at 10 a.m. at the U.S. 30-U.S. 33 interchange, which is already undergoing construction work.The announcement comes just days after a similar event in Indianapolis last week.

Holcomb says the "next Level Roads Plan" will demonstrate how funds generated via the recently enacted gas tax hike and other sources will be put to beneficial use. He will be joined in Fort Wayne by INDOT and legislative leaders.
