ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - Nearly 30 miles of gravel roads in Allen County will be converted to chip-and-seal surfaces this year.
The Allen County Commissioners approved $2 million for the conversion.
The plan is to convert half the county's 186 miles gravel roads.
The roads planned for conversion were chosen based on factors such as continuity to other paved roads and a minimum of two houses per mile on the road.
The $2 million comes from the county’s Local Income Tax funds.
Wednesday's announcement is on top of a $1 million infusion into trails and an annual $2.4 million increase in the LIT allocation to highway for road maintenance in unincorporated Allen County.
