JEFFERSON — Partial funding for a massive Interstate 90 and Route 11 project has been announced by U.S. Rep. Steven C. LaTourette, R-Bainbridge, and Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio.
The senator and representative individually announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Interstate Maintenance Program is releasing $3.3 million toward the $73 million project that will require up to five years to complete. The Ohio Department of Transportation has a pot of money for major new construction and Ashtabula County is receiving a “good portion” of that funding.
The affected portion of interstate is between Route 45 and the Route 11 interchange, or about 6.79 miles. ODOT estimated the project at $69.9 million.
