Northwest Indiana is set to get millions of dollars for road projects. The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced its latest round of Community Crossings Matching Grants. They cover 50 percent of the project cost for larger communities and 75 percent for smaller ones.

Locally, Crown Point, Griffith, Portage and Valparaiso all got the maximum of $1.5 million. So did Porter and Jasper counties.
