North Vernon to receive $263k grant for city streets

The city of North Vernon is receiving over $263,000 in grants for local roads.

Kathy Eaton-McKalip, director of local programs for the Indiana Department of Transportation, informed the North Vernon City Council about the news during it’s meeting Monday night. The money comes as an INDOT Community Crossings Grant and is 100-percent of what the city applied for, said Eaton-McKalip.

She says the money will be used for improvement to Old State Road 3, Madison Avenue, Norris Street and Veterans Drive.

Eaton-McKalip noted that the funds being delivered to the city are matching local dollars for the projects.

INDOT will announce the Community Crossing Grant awards for Columbus at a meeting at 9 a.m. tomorrow in Columbus City Hall.
