Ohio has over 200 road projects lined up for this year

Ohio is starting their construction season strong with a long list of projects. Some projects in Ross County and Pike County are anticipated to affect traffic this week.

In Ross County, motorists can expect to see projects such as:

  • Ohio 28 Culvert Replacement: The work began April 28 for a culvert replacement on Ohio 28 between Westfall Road and Core Road.
  • S. 35 Resurfacing: Resurfacing work has begun on U.S. 35 between Ohio 138 and the Fayette County Line.

They are only a few of the projects that the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has planned for this year. The 2024 construction season has 248 projects lined up in Ohio.

Of the 248 projects, 193 of them are new for 2024.

ODOT announced that the investment into the projects will have a price tag of $1.7 billion.

“Investing in efficient infrastructure is an investment in quality of life,” said Governor Mike DeWine. “Once complete, these projects will significantly reduce traffic congestion and improve roadway safety.”
