Paving the way
Indiana is considered America’s crossroads. That means our state experiences an enormous amount of cross-continental agriculture-related transportation, and so a solid infrastructure is critical to the economic vitality of our state.
When roads and bridges are in poor condition, associated restrictions and delays due to detours cost producers, processors and end-customers money. ICMC works to ensure Indiana and the U.S. transportation system has the infrastructure and capacity necessary to keep the corn industry competitive long-term and corn markets flowing.
What's the benefit? To help ensure Indiana’s rural roads and bridges remain viable, ICMC invests checkoff dollars in infrastructure research, as well as a new partnership with the Soy Transportation Coalition and Indiana Local Technical Assistance Program at Purdue University to offer affordable technical assistance to county highway departments for load testing of rural bridges.
