TRAC Releases 2006-2011 Project List

COLUMBUS - The Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC), which oversees funding of major new transportation projects, today approved the Major New Construction Program draft list from January, as part of the Governor Taft's Jobs and Progress Plan announced in August 2003.

 Today we re-emphasize our commitment to ensure Ohios highway network remains one of the very best in the nation, said Ohio Department of Transportation Director Gordon Proctor. This funding will help construct a number of projects that will improve our transportation system and enhance the lives of countless Ohioans.

 The Ohio Department of Transportation typically works on a six-year construction and planning cycle, adding a year of new projects annually. This round of TRAC project funding commitments covers the 2006-2011 time frame.

 Gov. Taft's Jobs and Progress Plan is Ohio's largest transportation initiative since the original creation of the interstate highway system. The plan devotes $5 billion over the next 10 years toward Ohio's highway network, generating more than 4,000 highway construction jobs, easing freeway congestion, improving road safety and connecting rural regions.

 The TRAC was created by the Ohio Legislature in 1997 to oversee fair distribution of transportation funds.
