Local governments received more than a shot of fiscal fuel for their road-repair efforts this year. While it won’t be enough to let them put the pedal to the metal in terms of rebuilding roadways, it will let them accelerate some of the work.
In total, local governments across the Hoosier state will collect about $4 million more for road construction in the next two years after lawmakers approved spending more on local road work in the state’s two-year budget.
Jackson County’s overall share of new money totals $1.72 million.
