TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Cities across the State of Indiana are looking to repair their roads.

Terre Haute leaders are also looking to do the same thing...but they may have to do it without help.

This week the state denied the city the Community Crossings Grant.

This is a matching grant.

That means the state would have matched the money the city provided.

News 10 spoke with city engineer Chuck Ennis.

He told us what happened with the denied grant.

"There's limited funds. So I don't know. I'm not really familiar with the grant selection process that INDOT uses, but there's a lot of demand for these grants all across the state. It just wasn't our turn," Ennis said.

Other cities in the Wabash Valley did receive the grant.

They include Rockville, Sullivan, and Vincennes.
