INDOT Awards $11.6M for Odon-Cannelburg Road Project
The Indiana Department of Transportation has awarded an additional 11.6 million dollars for the continuation of the Odon-Cannelburg Road Project in Daviess County.
Daviess County had already obtained much of the funding for the first phase of the project.
The 11.6 million dollars announced Tuesday will pay for the remaining two phases.
The road is being widened and buggy lanes are being constructed.
Officials say the project is critical for Daviess County to make travel safer for the local Amish community along the busy economic corridor.
The Daviess County award is part of 86-million dollars in federal transportation funding allocated Tuesday.
Other area projects include three bridge projects in Pike County, a connector road in Santa Claus, road reconstruction on State Street in Mount Vernon, new sign installation in the City of Huntingburg, Knox, Crawford and Sullivan counties and trail projects in Mount Vernon and Santa Claus.
