Indiana State Representative Ben Smaltz, a Republican from Auburn is calling the ‘Next Level Roads Plan’ an "investment in Indiana’s future". The plan stems from legislation passed during the 2017 legislative session, which marked the largest infrastructure investment in state history.

Representative Smaltz says that “due to increased fuel efficiency and the loss of buying power on the gasoline tax resulting from inflation, Indiana has recently seen funding shortfalls for its roads and bridges". Smaltz believes through the 'Next Level Roads Plane' package passed by the General Assembly this session, Hoosiers will begin to see noticeable improvements in our statewide and local infrastructure.

The Next Level Roads Plan sets in motion $4.7 billion in statewide infrastructure projects over the next five years, with over $150 million going to local counties. Future construction projects will result in 650 miles of resurfaced lanes and 36 rehabilitated bridges.

State Rep. Ben Smaltz (R-Auburn) represents all of DeKalb County, and portions of Steuben and Allen counties.
