On Thursday, final approval was given to Gov. John Kasich's Jobs and Transportation Plan, setting in motion a plan to create 60,000 new jobs and help grow Ohio's economy with a $3 billion investment in infrastructure over six years.
The state's Transportation Review Advisory Council completed the last step of the process by voting unanimously to put the governor's plan into action.
"We have been working hard to move through the process quickly and get projects started. Thanks to the governor's plan, we will be able to get more projects moving faster, without a tax increase," said Ohio Department of Transportation Director Jerry Wray.
The vote is the final step in the independent council's approval process for Kasich's plan. Many of the projects were previously delayed by 10 years or more and now, some may start as soon as this fall.
View a complete list of all projects TRAC approved for construction throughout the state in the coming years. Some local projects include a railroad grade separation on McCord Road, widening Interstate 75 from Phillips Avenue to Interstate 280, and the U.S. Route 224 Bridge and Interchange with Interstate 75.
The nine-member TRAC was established by the Ohio Revised Code in 1997 and provides guidance for developing a project selection process for ODOT's largest investments of more than $12 million.
