SULLIVAN, IN. (WTHI) -- More than one hundred million dollars is going to rural communities for infrastructure improvements in the Hoosier state. One city in the Wabash Valley is receiving a cut from those funds.

The City of Sullivan is among 54 cities, towns, and counties that received money for improvement projects. The money came from federal funding that the Indiana Department of Transportation received.

Residents of all ages in Sullivan have had concerns about the safety of pedestrians in the city.

"Stop signs right here would be great. I think that people should learn to slow down around here because there are always people walking," said Sullivan resident, Johnathon Bishop.

INDOT has awarded 100.8 million dollars to rural communities across the state. From that, the city of Sullivan is receiving 2.6 million dollars. Scott Manning, the strategic communication director for INDOT, said applications for this funding were very competitive.

"There was significant interest. We had about 3x the dollar amount in applications than we had funding available," explained Manning.

Sullivan plans to fund bike and pedestrian enhancements to the surrounding areas of Main Street.

Although there are changes residents would like to see now, this funding will not be available until July of 2025. With that, the next four years will be dedicated to planning and preparing these projects to be 'shovel ready.'
