Public comment now being accepted on Ohio’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program
COLUMBUS (March 27, 2009) - Governor Ted Strickland has announced the transportation projects selected to receive partial or full funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) funds made available to Ohio.
In accordance with federal regulations (23 CFR §450.216) and the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Public Involvement Process, ODOT is seeking public comment on the list of projects not currently listed in the FY 2008-2011 Ohio Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
The STIP is an updated listing of transportation improvement projects utilizing federal, state, and local funds scheduled for implementation, throughout the state, over the STIP’s four year period. It is a financially balanced program which consists of projects for highways, transit, bikeways, rail, and other modes of transportation. The current STIP was approved June 30, 2007. It is amended as needed to incorporate changes in federal funding for transportation projects.
The list of ARRA projects not currently in the STIP may be viewed by following these file links:

Following the conclusion of this public review period, these projects will be amended to the STIP.
