Projects are planned for the state's major cities

Ohio officials announced an investment of more than $120 million across 13 counties for road and highway construction projects across the state.

The new construction funding list from the Transportation Review Advisory Council includes $21 million for new construction, $35.5 million in additional construction, $33.4 million in new money for preliminary engineering, and another $28.4 million for more funding for development projects.

“As Ohio’s economy continues to grow, these projects will help ensure that our infrastructure keeps pace,” said Gov. Mike DeWine in a statement. “These projects represent an ongoing investment to ensure people and goods can safely and efficiently move throughout Ohio.”

While the bulk of the money is geared toward road and highway construction, $15 million is going to the Central Ohio Transit Authority to implement bus rapid transit along a nine-mile corridor in Columbus.

Aside from the planned new bus corridor, several projects are in and around Columbus. Four others are in the Cincinnati-Dayton area, while two are near Cleveland.

Another project is scheduled for the Toledo area, while only three are scheduled for rural areas around the state.

“Our mission is to provide Ohio with a transportation system that is safe, accessible, well-maintained, and positioned for the future. By advancing these projects, we’re fulfilling that mission,” said Jack Marchbanks Ohio Department of Transportation director, in a statement.
