The Hamilton County Transportation Improvement District (TID) approved, with strong support from TID Board Member and State Representative Jonathan Dever (R-Madeira), to fund $360,000 in local infrastructure projects that directly impact the 28th House District.


In a unanimous vote by the TID Board, $110,000 was allocated for a detailed design for a Blue Ash Road improvement project in the City of Deer Park. Additionally, $250,000 was awarded to the City of Montgomery to conduct preliminary engineering that is needed to improve the interchange at Montgomery Road and Ronald Reagan Highway.


“It is great to see our state funding local infrastructure projects,” Dever said. “I was proud to support the area I represent in the Ohio House as a board member of the TID. These infrastructure projects will improve the quality of life within the district and I look forward to the completion of the projects.”


An additional $180,000 was approved to be used by the City of Silverton for improvements in the Montgomery Road-Stewart Road area. Although this project is not within the boundaries of the 28th District, it is a broad project that positively impacts communities within the district.


One of 12 authorized districts across the state, the Hamilton County TID is tasked with implementing transit and transportation improvements in an effort to promote economic development and create jobs. As a member, Rep. Dever will contribute to the creation of sound transportation and infrastructure policy throughout Hamilton County.
