STATEHOUSE - 

State Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) joined regional and state officials in Minford, Ohio today to break ground on the Portsmouth Bypass project. The three-year road construction project is one of the largest state infrastructure projects in recent state history.

"With the completion of this project will come new economic opportunities for the entire region," said Senator Uecker. "This new bypass allows existing companies easier access to new markets for their goods and services."

The Portsmouth bypass, named the "Southern Ohio Veterans Memorial Highway," was made possible through the first public-private partnership of its kind. Construction of the new bypass is expected to decrease travel time by more than one-half hour between U.S. Routes 23 and 52 and allows more convenient access to I-70 and I-64.
