GREENFIELD – State lawmakers and community leaders met Monday morning to reflect on roadwork improvements Greenfield completed with the help of a state grant.
Greenfield Mayor Chuck Fewell joined Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma, Sen. Mike Crider, Rep. Bob Cherry and leaders from Aim, the advocacy group for Indiana’s cities and towns, to commemorate recently completed road improvements in the city.
The group met on Independence Road near the Liberty Shores neighborhood, an area that saw significant road upgrades after Greenfield benefited from more than $980,000 in the first round of the state’s Community Crossings grant program.
During the inaugural year, the program provided nearly $86 million in road funding to Indiana’s cities and towns. Greenfield used its portion of the funding to repair nearly 15 miles of city streets, as well as to improve sidewalks, curbs and ramps to make them ADA-compliant.
Fewell told those gathered the city repaired roads that haven’t been touched in more than 50 years.
Aim CEO Matt Greller said the road work being done in Greenfield is symbolic of all the work happening in cities and towns all over the state of Indiana.
