COLUMBUS – State Representative Mark Fraizer (R-Newark) today announced $1 million worth of funding was approved by the state Controlling Board for the support of the Amazon.com Services. Inc. project in the City of New Albany in Licking County.
The $1 million comes from a Roadwork Development Grant to be used in FY21 for public roadwork improvements surrounding the Amazon project. Roadwork Development Grants are awarded for public roadwork improvements that support the expansion or attraction of businesses. Eligible costs include widening, paving, road construction and reconstruction, and right-of-way infrastructure improvements such as sewer or utility lines.
“I applaud the Controlling Board for releasing these funds to support the development of infrastructure around the growing Amazon facility,” said Fraizer. “The project is expected to bring in nearly 1,000 new jobs. I look forward to seeing its completion.”
The funds will specifically be used to support the construction of a new road named Ganton Parkway and the installation of a traffic signal at the intersection of Beech Road and Ganton Parkway.
Representative Mark Fraizer is currently serving his first term as state representative for the 71st Ohio House District, which includes portions of Licking County.
