The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is kicking off another record construction season, investing $2.8 billion into 950 road and bridge improvement projects across the state. There are 39 projects classified as "major projects" with a value above $10 million.

"Investing in efficient infrastructure is an investment in quality of life," said Gov. Mike DeWine. "Once complete, these projects will significantly reduce traffic congestion and improve roadway safety."

This year's construction program also includes 176 safety projects and laying nearly 5,700 mi. of pavement — enough to pave a two-lane road from New York City to Los Angeles. Projects will repair or replace 885 bridges in the state.

"While the orange barrels that are synonymous with summer may be a source of frustration and inconvenience for some, they are a sign of progress and improvement for all who live in Ohio and who travel through it," said ODOT Director Jack Marchbanks.
