The City of Richmond has been awarded a nearly $200,000 grant by the State of Indiana for local infrastructure improvement. The grant, part of the Community Crossings Matching Grant Fund Program, will be matched 50/50 by local dollars to mill and pave seven Richmond streets.
The bidding process will begin in 2023 and work is expected to start in late summer of 2023. Work will include milling and repaving parts of seven streets. This involves removing the old road surface and replacing it with new asphalt. The resulting street improvements will help reduce wear and tear on vehicles, improve public safety, and extend the life of the streets.
The streets chosen for these improvements are as follows:
These improvements come as a part of the City of Richmond’s commitment to maintaining and improving our city streets. Since 2016, the City of Richmond has used Community Crossings grants to mill and repave 42 miles of local streets.

"This grant is part of the City's commitment to investing in our infrastructure. I am pleased that we were able to secure this funding because it allows our local dollars to go farther."
— Ian Vanness, Director of Infrastructure & Development
