COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Gary Scherer (R-Circleville) today applauded the recent announcement that because of the Ohio’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 two bridges in Pickaway County with upcoming repairs at Winchester Road bridge over Walnut Creek as well as Airbase Road bridge over a branch of Walnut Creek.


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 in the state are in need of serious repair.
