COLUMBUS—State Senator Frank LaRose (R-Hudson) today announced the approval of $310,000 in new state funding to support the City of Twinsburg's Amazon.com project with roadwork improvements.

Approved Monday by the Ohio Controlling Board, the funds will support the extension of Independence Parkway by 750 feet to enable the construction of Amazon's new 248,000-square-foot distribution center in Twinsburg's CornerStone Business Park.

"I'm excited to see the construction of Amazon's new Twinsburg facility move forward," said LaRose. "The investment in this new site is an investment in the local families who will benefit from the 150 high-quality jobs the project will bring to our community."

In May, the Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved a six-year tax credit to incentivize Amazon.com to construct a distribution center in Twinsburg. The facility is expected to support 150 full-time employees and generate more than $4 million in new annual payroll by the end of 2019.
