State Senator Larry Obhof (R–Medina) today joined Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor, Ohio House Speaker William G. Batchelder (R–Medina), and State Representative Dave Hall (R-Millersburg) to announce local investment in Medina County bridges as part of Ohio’s Bridge Partnership program.

The Bridge Partnership program is a joint effort between the Ohio Department of Transportation and local governments to repair or replace ailing bridges that are under local ownership and control. Overall, the initiative will invest roughly $120 million over three years. The partnership, which was initiated by a provision added to the state budget by the Senate in 2012, is expected to repair or replace 220 local bridges statewide.

“The Ohio Bridge Partnership brings our state and local governments together to provide much-needed attention to Ohio’s aging bridges,” said Obhof. “The number-one goal of the initiative is to ensure the safety of the public who travel across and under these bridges every day."

The Bridge Partnership includes eleven projects in Medina County. Construction and repairs will occur over the course of the next three years.
