INDIANAPOLIS — Nearly 90 miles of Indianapolis roads will be reconstructed and worked on by the Department of Public Works (DPW) next spring.

Mayor Joe Hogsett joined DPW and others Thursday to announce the second phase of the Circle City Forward Initiative. It's a $25 million investment.

"Each district's going to get some of that money, but particularly for these districts that have been historically underappreciated, they will get more money on residential roads," Hogsett said.

The reconstruction will address 280 segments of roadway across all City-County Council districts.

The city says the investment is about 50% of the amount DPW has been able to spend on residential streets in the previous 5 years.

The road projects are set to begin in the Spring of 2022 with the majority of those project said to be done by next December. A few projects may take longer.

The $25 million is not connected to the national infrastructure spending plan.
