Last November, South Whitley received welcome news from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT): notice of a substantial $768,000 Community Crossings grant earmarked for street rehabilitation within the community. This significant allocation represents yet another success for South Whitley.

The recent award marks the fourth time South Whitley has been honored with a Community Crossings grant, adding to a total of over $1.8 million received by the southern Whitley County community since the program’s inception. This consistent recognition underscores the town’s commitment to infrastructure improvement and its proactive approach to securing funding for essential projects.

With this latest grant, South Whitley continues to demonstrate its dedication to enhancing its streets and ensuring the safety and accessibility of its roadways for residents and visitors alike. The ongoing support from the Community Crossings program plays a vital role in fulfilling these objectives and furthering the town’s development initiatives.
