COLUMBUS—State Representative Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) today applauded the recent announcement that because of the Ohio Department of Transportation’s successful efforts to reduce overhead costs and improve efficiency, $120 million in funding is now available to repair and replace more than 200 county and city-owned bridges over the next three years.

The Ohio Department of Transportation has chosen bridges based on various factors including safety and the importance to local job creation efforts.  Ohio’s Bridge Partnership has specified funding for a bridge in Highland County with the upcoming repair of Township Road 144 over Plum Run. 

“This is reflective of the commitment we’ve made since 2011 to do everything in our power to create, retain, and improve the environment for business in Ohio” said Rep. Rosenberger. “Governor Kasich recognizes the value in good infrastructure and how vital it is to our rural communities. The bridges that these funds benefit could play a pivotal role in in economic development in our local communities and dismiss any concern on the safety of the existing conditions.”

Ohio is home to 44,000 bridges, which is the second-highest number in the nation behind Texas.  The condition of Ohio’s bridges is reportedly better than the national average, however many bridges are in need of serious repair.
