More than a dozen Tippecanoe County streets would get state funding for improvements under a plan preliminarily approved by the county’s Technical Transportation Committee this week.

County officials will open the plan to public comment this spring, before submitting it to state officials. It includes numerous road and sidewalk improvements to be carried out during the next five years.

Additional trails would be added as part of more than half the projects, which county Transportation planner Doug Poad says is designed to make the county friendlier to all travelers.

Funds for the construction come from the federal gas tax and all projects must first be okayed by the Indiana Department of Transportation.
