By |  November 11, 2013

The state of Ohio plans to invest $120 million to repair and replace more than 200 county- and city-owned bridges over the next three years, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). ODOT says it reduced overhead costs and improved efficiencies to free up the $120 million.

The state says work is expected to begin on the first 40 bridges next year. ODOT will work with local officials to identify other bridges to repair or replace in the following years.

According to ODOT, Ohio has 44,000 bridges – the second-highest number in the United States behind Texas.
