(Richmond, IN)--INDOT on Tuesday announced funding for two major projects for Richmond. The first is the Loop project that Mayor Dave Snow touched on last week. It will help connect Uptown to the Depot District. The second project will connect the D Street Trailhead of the Cardinal Greenway to the north end of the Whitewater Gorge Trail. That construction is still three years away. The total of the federal grant is nearly $2.8 million.
