COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Mike Henne (R-Clayton) has announced that a bridge in Montgomery County will receive state funding for repairs, as part of an initiative by the Ohio Department of Transportation to repair and replace more than 200 county- and city-owned bridges statewide.


The approved project is a bridge on Old Mill Road crossing a stream in the City of Clayton, located in northern Montgomery County.


“I am pleased to see a bridge in our community selected for needed improvement,” Henne said. “I applaud the efficiency measures taken by ODOT that made the project possible without draining other resources.”


Due to reductions in overhead costs and other efficiency measures at ODOT, $120 million in funding is now available for bridge construction projects statewide over the next three years.


With 44,000 bridges, Ohio trails only Texas for the most bridges in the United States. Although some reports state that the condition of Ohio’s bridges is better than the national average, many are in need of repairs.
