 2014 Ohio Construction Fast Facts

 

Gov. Kasich’s Ohio Jobs and Transportation Plan is the centerpiece of Ohio’s largest-ever highway construction season
This spring, ODOT is embarking on a $2.5 billion construction season – the largest ever – fueled by millions of dollars generated by Gov. Kasich’s Ohio Jobs and Transportation Plan. By unlocking the revenue potential of our Ohio Turnpike asset, the governor’s plan has eliminated decades-long delays on some of Ohio’s most anticipated transportation projects.

Quick facts about ODOT’s 2014 construction season

  • ODOT’s 2014 construction season includes 936 different projects throughout the state totaling $2.5 billion
  • By unlocking the value of our Ohio Turnpike asset, the Ohio Jobs and Transportation Plan is funding multiple phases of five projects that will begin or continue this year, including:
    • Construction of Cleveland’s eastbound George V. Voinovich Bridge
    • Interstate 75 highway reconstruction program through Wood and Hancock counties
    • Reconstruction of State Route 57 in Lorain County 
    • Widening of Interstate 271 in northern Summit County
    • Construction of Cleveland’s Opportunity Corridor
  • Other large projects beginning or continuing this year include:
    • Construction of a new interchange at Interstate 71 and Martin Luther King Blvd. in Cincinnati’s “Uptown” area
    • Reconstruction of the interchange at U.S. Route 23 and Interstate 270 in northern Franklin County
    • Modernization of Interstate 75 through Dayton
    • Replacing the bridge on Interstate 70 over State Route 9 in St. Clairsville
    • Reconstruction of Interstate 75 in Lucas County
  • $1.5 billion in roadway resurfacing projects
  • 84 interstate safety upgrades
  • Largest project contract awarded this year is the Portsmouth Bypass project at $370 million
  • 30 bridges repaired or replaced as part of the new County Bridge Program worth $14 million

Job creation is Gov. John R. Kasich’s top priority – and these transportation improvements are vital to that goal
Job creation is a top priority for the Kasich Administration, and a modern, well-maintained transportation system is vital to achieving that goal.  That’s why the governor was so alarmed when he came into office at a time when Ohio faced a $1.6 billion backlog in transportation projects, poor fiscal health, lower credit ratings and an overall shortfall in funding.  As a result of the funding backlog, Ohio had been forced to push back—often by decades—some of the state’s largest, most pressing transportation construction projects. Gov. Kasich made it clear that Ohio must change the way we build our highways in response to these challenges.  The result was his Ohio Jobs and Transportation Plan – and many of those long-delayed projects will be moving forward this spring.

The key to this construction season:  unlocking the revenue potential of the Ohio Turnpike through innovation
Gov. Kasich challenged ODOT to think outside the box, have the courage to change the status quo and take on the issues that had been kicked down the road for too long: like how to ODOT more efficient, how to reduce costs and how to leverage the value of the Ohio Turnpike. Thanks to the support of so many transportation advocates, we found creative approaches to funding that allowed ODOT to reduce its costs to free up resources for other needs, develop innovative ways to work with the private sector and leverage the Ohio Turnpike to help us improve our roadways.
