COLUMBUS- Rep. Dick Stein (R-Norwalk) today announced that the city of Huron has been awarded funding through the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) Systemic Safety Funding Program.
The program funds projects aimed at reducing and preventing pedestrian-involved crashes and roadway departure accidents.
The city of Huron will receive $650,000 in Fiscal Year 2024 to fill sidewalk gaps along U.S. 6 from Gateway Boulevard to Heron Drive.
“Additional sidewalks along U.S. 6 will provide safety to pedestrians as they travel along the busy area,” Stein said. “Thank you ODOT for recognizing this safety concern and selecting Huron as one of the grant recipients to fix this problem.”
Funding for these projects is made possible through ODOT's Highway Safety Improvement Program which, since its launch in 2022, has grown to become one of the largest traffic safety programs in the country.
