With the I-69 project still in full swing and many more projects to come, we’re offering a weekly update during the 2023 construction season! As always, be mindful of our construction workers and drive safely!

• Indianapolis: Mayor Joe Hogsett today announced the 12 projects selected for funding through the 2023 Indianapolis Neighborhood Infrastructure Partnership (INIP), a program of the Indianapolis Department of Public Works (Indy DPW). The projects chosen for 2023 total nearly $4 million in investment in Indianapolis neighborhoods, with more than $1.8 million coming from Indy DPW funds. Through the Indy Neighborhood Infrastructure Partnership, Indy DPW is able to double the effective value of tax dollars, increase the number of neighborhood and community-based projects and jump-start development that would not otherwise be possible. 2023 Indy Neighborhood Infrastructure Partnership Projects include on the Southside: Ridge Hill Trails HOA – Resurfacing throughout this neighborhood on the far south side will improve the quality-of-life for residents. Town of Homecroft – Madison Drive will be resurfaced and repaired at Loretta Drive, making the area more accessible for residents.
