The governor officially kicked off what is being billed as the most ambitious plan ever for the state’s road construction season Wednesday afternoon.
The governor’s Jobs and Transportaion Plan will use $2.5 billion from Ohio Turnpike bond revenue to fund major construction projects all over the state.
Locally, Williams County will not see much of it thouth. Some big projects are planned for some major metropolitan areas in Ohio, such as Toledo and Cleveland along with Dayton and Cincinnati.
Williams County Commissioner Brian Davis, one of the members of the state’s Transportation Review Advisory Council, told the Bryan Times Thursday morning, that a major project is defined as one involving $12 million or more, and Williams County just doesn’t have any $12 million road construction projects, nor will it anytime soon.
Anything less than $12 million doesn’t qualify for Turnpike bond revenue funding.
