More than 35 miles of Bartholomew County roads will receive improvements over the next two years thanks to more than $2 million in federal highway funds and more than $500,000 from a state accounting error.
The Bartholomew County Commissioners said Monday that the final leg of the County Road 600N project, to better link U.S. 31 and State Road 9, could be completed because of $2.1 million in federal funds. The county must pay $400,000.
The Commissioners also amended the county's capital improvement plan for this year and 2013, to include the $571,363 of Economic Development Income Tax funds that the state incorrectly withheld from the county, but has returned. All but $30,000 of the EDIT funds will be used for road overlay projects.
