This week the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Transportation (ODOT) Review Advisory Council approved $2.4 billion in funding for state construction projects throughout the state.

The council approved 64 projects across the state that are to be funded through 2026, as reported in the Columbus Dispatch. Projects include interchange upgrades on I-75 and I-475 in Toledo, finishing the I-270 and Rt. 23 project in Columbus, and upgrades to the I-90 innerbelt in Cleveland.

Many of these projects were not scheduled to begin for several years, but a surplus of federal money coming from other states not using all their allotted money, has allowed for these projects to be expedited.

These projects will provide thousands of jobs for skilled construction workers throughout the state for the next 10 years.
