Ohio DOT Director Wray Plugs Use of Turnpike Tolls to Pay for Statewide Construction Program

Cleveland.com posts an op-ed column by ODOT Director Jerry Wray, who writes, “By leveraging the untapped value of our Ohio Turnpike to issue bonds, Ohio is injecting up to $1.5 billion into our roads – without raising the gas tax.  As a result, over the past six years, our state has seen three of the biggest highway construction seasons on record and we have initiated nearly 6,000 transportation projects worth $12.5 billion.”
