The Indiana Department of Transportation announced Wednesday $150 million in grants to municipalities and counties for road and bridge projects.
The Community Crossings grants pay 50 percent of a project's cost in counties with a population of at least 50,000, and in municipalities with a population of at least 10,000. The grants pay 75 percent of the cost of projects in smaller counties and municipalities.
The program is in its second year. A total of 467 communities applied for grants; 396 received them.
