Under Senate Republican leadership, Ohio has invested an unprecedented $14 billion in nearly 7,000 road improvement projects over the past seven years. This network of infrastructure is the lifeblood of our economy, allowing our residents to get to work and our companies to transport job-sustaining goods and services. The Senate especially took the lead on renewing the state’s popular and successful Bridge Partnership Program, which connects the Ohio Department of Transportation to local governments in need of support for critical bridge repair and safety projects. Under Senate Republican leadership, Ohio is investing in “smart mobility” research to position the state for the future of transportation technology. This commitment to preserving our infrastructure is essential to maintaining Ohio’s economic growth, retaining and attracting jobs and preparing for tomorrow’s innovation.
