WASHINGTON, DC (FOX19) - Forty-four Ohio Counties will be eligible to receive new federal resources to help repair roads and bridges following serious severe rainfall last spring, from March to May. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that the Ohio Department of Transportation has been awarded FY 2011 Federal Highway Administration resources to improve federal infrastructure following the severe storm-induced damages across Ohio.
Five of the seven counties in the Ohio portion of the Cincinnati region are included.
“Ohio residents and businesses hit hard by storm-related damage will have additional support to rebuild – and recover from – damaged local roads and bridges,” Brown said. “Ohioans rely on a sound transportation infrastructure to move goods and services and travel to their destinations. These new resources will help local communities make the repairs needed to keep moving Ohioans and Ohio-made goods along safe federal highways.”
