Indiana has more than $2 billion in the bank, and its roads and bridges are crumbling at an ever-increasing rate.
Indiana has a long way to go to bring its roads and bridges up to shape, the Indiana Department of Transportation says. Anyone who has driven on area roads — or who has wanted to drive on the Cline Avenue Bridge — knows this is true.
INDIANAPOLIS | Facing the prospect of no new money to combat an expected rise in deteriorating bridges and crumbling highways over the next decade, state transportation officials are putting the question to Hoosiers — what road conditions are you willing to pay for?
INDIANAPOLIS | The state official overseeing the Indiana Toll Road lease assured Hoosier lawmakers Tuesday that the private operator's bankruptcy will not affect highway functions, force toll hikes or put state funds at risk.

INDIANAPOLIS | Just two out of seven requests for new special group license plates won approval Tuesday by a legislative committee tasked with ensuring groups with plates meet strict quality standards.

CROWN POINT | The Lake County E-911 chairman said he is building a back-up emergency call center in East Chicago as a bulwark against a rival public safety dispatch service proposed by Cedar Lake and Schererville town officials.
VALPARAISO | Valparaiso resident Larry McAfee has been named a Sagamore of the Wabash, the highest honor an Indiana governor can give.
INDIANAPOLIS | The plan by Schererville, St. John and Cedar Lake to opt out of Lake County's E-911 network by establishing their own emergency dispatch center is not what state lawmakers had in mind when they authorized two Public Safety Answering Points, or PSAP, per county.
VALPARAISO | Jose Rios choked with emotion as he asked the school board to continue the policy of allowing the children of school employees to attend Valparaiso schools even if they live outside the city.
On behalf of the Indiana Manufacturers Association, I express our appreciation for Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso, and his efforts during the 2014 Indiana General Assembly to successfully remove tax provisions harmful to Hoosier manufacturers organized as C corporations.
