COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Mike Duffey (R-Worthington) is pleased to announce that the Ohio Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) awarded $50 million in funding to reconstruct the I-270/US 33 interchange in Dublin. The funding will allow construction to commence on the $93.8 million interchange by late 2014.


“I am glad that, with the help of Governor Kasich, we were able to move this project several years ahead of schedule,” said Rep. Duffey. “As recently as two years ago, TRAC did not have this project funded and therefore had no estimated start time.”


The I-270/US 33 interchange project involves the reconstruction of the existing interchange to improve safety and reduce congestion in the area.


The TRAC funding, as well as $25 million from the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, $17.25 million from the City of Dublin, and $1.5 million from the Ohio Department of Transportation, will provide vital support to the construction project. It was originally estimated that funding for non-Tier 1 projects would not be available until after 2027.


The project is expected to have a positive impact on the infrastructure of northwest Franklin County and the city of Dublin in particular. More than 27,000 individuals work within the immediate impact area of the interchange and approximately 25,000 trucks move through the interchange daily. The City of Dublin projects the creation of 32,000 new jobs in the vicinity of the interchange within 20 years.
