Ohio's Jobs & Transportation Plan: MORE PROJECTS - FASTER.

​ $3 Billion Over Six Years 

The Ohio Jobs and Transportation Plan
Gov. John R. Kasich’s Jobs and Transportation plan injects nearly $3 billion in state, local and federal, and Turnpike money into 41 transportation projects across the state. These needed funds erase delays and accelerate most construction projects by more than 10 years.
"By thinking outside the box we’re attacking Ohio’s highway budget deficit without a tax increase and keeping Ohio’s highways in top condition. Our agriculture, manufacturing and logistics industries, as well as so many others, depend on our world class highway system for their success and the $3 billion in new funds made possible from our plan keeps them moving so Ohio’s economic recovery can keep moving.”
- Gov. John R. Kasich

 What People are Saying...


Statement from Open Letter of Support
Funding of $3B Transportation Plan

"On behalf of the transportation users and industries that so strongly depend on a quality transportation system to support commerce and the jobs it creates throughout Ohio, we whole heartedly urge TRAC to back Governor Kasich’s pro-growth, pro-safety highway program that he has just introduced.  Northwest Ohio is now beginning to see the positive results from the new US Route 24 (“Fort To Port”) project.  Along with the Ohio Turnpike, the improvement of I-75 will provide the final stanchion in our transportation network that will allow northwest Ohio to truly serve as a world-class logistics and high-tech industrial center to much of the world.  This is a bold plan at the right time!"​

Richard Bertz, President & CEO/ C. Michael Smith, Chairman, Mannik Smith Group

“The Governor’s recommendations to TRAC account for more than $315 million in improvements to Lucas County highways, including the remainder of the I-75 corridor in North Toledo, an important byway for commerce and truck traffic contributing to our local economy.  The construction projects will also continue to provide jobs for the skilled labor force in northwest Ohio, helping to keep Toledoans at work.  This outside the box thinking will benefit our community all around.”

Mike Bell, Mayor, City of Toledo

“Job growth comes from a reliable transportation network that is fast and cost effective. Gov. John Kasich’s plan will ensure Ohio has the infrastructure in place to meet the demands of job creators.

“There’s no questioning the fact that Ohio’s turnpike is a critical transportation asset for our state. A strong transportation system is indeed a key to the state’s economy. The governor’s plan represents a long-term solution to a problem that would become a burden to localities down the road.

“It is my hope the Ohio Transportation Review Advisory Council will give the governor’s plan its full support.”​

John Molinaro, president and CEO of the Appalachian Partnership for Economic Growth
