City of Jasper Awarded Community Crossings Grant

The City of Jasper has received a Community Crossing Matching Grant of $264,162.50 for improvements to Portersville Rd.  

Through the grant provided by the Indiana Department of Transportation, improvements will include the widening of Portersville Road, the installation and replacement of storm sewers and the installation of a pedestrian path. 

The project has been planned in collaboration with the Greater Jasper School Corporation to be completed by the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. It addresses a major safety concern involving pedestrians/students walking along the current narrow roadway.
