Kosciusko County has lined up funding for a major repaving project.
The county was informed recently that it would receive $797,587 from the Community Crossings matching grant program operated by the state.
The money will be used to help cover the cost of repaving about a 7.5-mile stretch of road along CR 900N between Ind. 19 and Ind. 15.
County officials anticipated winning the state award and had already begun the bidding process for a contractor.
On Tuesday, the county awarded the project to Phend & Brown, Milford, which submitted a bid of $1,163,809 for the project.
The paving work will be done early next summer.
