Representative Michael Sheehy (D-Toledo) today announced the release of more than $5 million in state funds from the Ohio Controlling Board for several projects in House District 46.


Two separate projects on Airport Highway in Springfield will redesign the McCord Rd intersection ($550,000) and rehabilitate the bridge over I-475 ($2 million).


The third district project to receive funds will take place at Maumee Bay State Park, with improvements totaling over $2.8 million. 


“I feel confident that we’ll continue to see new projects coming from the state this budget cycle,” said Rep. Sheehy. “I’m proud of the work this legislature did to reinvest in Northwest Ohio’s infrastructure, and we’ll keep fighting to do more.”


The funds were approved at Monday’s meeting of the state Controlling Board, a bipartisan panel that oversees state spending.
