Seymour Awarded more than $900,000 for Road Work

The state has awarded Seymour $928,683.22 from the Community Crossings Matching Grant Fund to repave city streets in 2023. That money will be matched by the city for an investment of more than $1.8 million to improve existing road infrastructure.

City officials learned of the news Tuesday morning. In the past three years, Seymour has received nearly $3 million from the CCMG fund.

Mayor Matt Nicholson thanked city engineer Bernie Hauersperger, Seymour Department of Public Works Director Chad Dixon and DPW administrative assistant Michelle Gossett for their work in completing the CCMG applications each year.

He also said the funding would not be possible without matching financial support from the Seymour Redevelopment Commission.

The following streets will be included in the 2023 overlay schedule:

  • Vine Street from South Avenue to Tipton Street (U.S. 50).
  • Airport Road from Second Street to the end of the road.
  • Hackberry Drive from Locust Drive to U.S. 50
  • Locust Court West from Locust Drive to the cul-de-sac.
  • Locust Drive from 220 feet south of Locust Court West to North Locust Drive
  • Locust Court Center from Locust Drive to the cul-de-sac.
  • Locust Court East from Locust Drive to the cul-de-sac.
  • Locust Drive North from Schleter Road to U.S. 50.
  • D Avenue from First Avenue to C Avenue
  • Johnson Street from Fifth Street to 160 feet south of Fourth Street
  • O’Brien Street from 600 feet south of Burkart Boulevard to 900 feet north of Burkart Boulevard.

The only project that was not approved to receive funding from this round of CCMG grants was Burkart Boulevard from State Road 11 to 16th Street.

In a letter from Indiana Department of Transportation, Governor Eric Holcomb and INDOT Commissioner Michael Smith said the CCMG funds will enable Seymour to help build and improve Indiana’s infrastructure.

“The state of Indiana looks forward to partnering with all Hoosier communities, both urban and rural, to invest in road and bridge infrastructure projects,” the letter stated. “Improvement to local roads and bridges will bring about economic development, create jobs and strengthen local transportation networks for all of Indiana.”
