Planned Transportation Spending
An examination of Indiana’s 2012-2015 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program reveals that new road capacity projects* account for the largest chunk of planned spending (45 percent). Road maintenance/minor widening projects comprise 20 percent, followed by bridge mainte- nance/replacement projects (15 percent). Bridge capacity expansion projects account for 12 percent of the planned spending; almost 77 percent of the expenditures in this category are for the Ohio River Bridge project. Transit projects comprise 3 percent of the STIP. Safety projects** and projects classified as “other” each make up 2 percent of the STIP. Bicycle/pedestrian projects** make up 1 percent of planned spending. No road or bridge projects with bicycle/pedestrian components (such as adding sidewalks when reconstructing a roadway) were identified. share
