Funding the Project

The City applied for a federal grant through the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) in March 2014 and was awarded $5,840,000 of the $8,020,000 needed in June 2014. In 2017, the City received notice that it will receive a no-interest loan from the State Capital Improvement Fund in the amount of $1.299 million. The grant funds are contingent on addressing the level of service and safety issues on this roadway, which the “road diet” design will achieve.
