Meigs, Gallia eligible for road repair funds

POMEROY — Both Meigs and Gallia Counties are included in the list of 45 Ohio counties eligible to receive new federal resources to help repair roads and bridges damaged by spring rains, according to a release from U. S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) Monday.

Brown said that the Ohio Department of Transportation has been awarded fiscal year Federal Highway Administration resources to improve federal infrastructure following storm-induced damages across Ohio from March to May.

“Ohio residents and businesses hit hard by storm-related damage will have additional support to rebuild – and recover from – damaged local roads and bridges,” Brown said. “Ohioans rely on a sound transportation infrastructure to move goods and services and travel to their destinations. These new resources will help local communities make the repairs needed to keep moving Ohioans and Ohio-made goods along safe federal highways.”
