The Ohio Bridge Partnership Program is a new construction initiative designed to reduce the excess of deficient county bridges. ODOT will work cooperatively with Ohio’s County Engineers and municipalities to replace bridges in need of repair and/or replacement.
The program provides $120 million from SFY 2015 – 2017 for the replacement of bridges statewide. Projects meeting eligibility criteria will be designed and constructed through the ODOT-Let process with 100% federal funds – no local match required.
To be eligible for this program, the bridges must be:
- Identified as structurally deficient
- Be open and carry vehicular traffic
- Not Currently funded by other sources such as LBR Program, Ohio Public Works Program, or the County Capital Programs
- Must meet the federal bridge definition (span greater than 20 ft.)
ODOT and locals with eligible bridges will work closely to develop the appropriate scope, schedule and budget for each project. Approval from each local will be required prior to advancing projects to construction.
