Democrats deliver for Ohio

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Infrastructure

Ohio has one of the most heavily traveled roadway systems in the country and it is estimated that poor roads cost drivers as much as $4.7 billion in wasted fuel and lost time. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, Ohio rates a grade C– in our overall infrastructure, C+ for bridges, and D for roadways. 

On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which provides funding to “modernize our roads, bridges, transit, rail, ports, airports, broadband, and drinking water and wastewater infrastructure.” 

Based on formulas used to apportion transportation funds, Ohio will receive approximately $9.2 billion for highways and $483 million for bridge replacement and repairs over the next five years. In addition, Ohio is eligible to compete for additional funding for economically significant bridges and other projects that will have significant economic benefits.
