OVRDC seeks public comment on proposed Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) project funding

The OVRDC Transportation Committee is recommending projects for funding through Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) funds allocated to OVRDC.  This year’s budget allocation to Ohio’s six Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs) was nearly doubled, and OVRDC’s share increased to $1.2 million dollars for STBG transportation roadway projects.

OVRDC STBG funds can be used for roadway projects that occur on federal-aid eligible routes within the OVRDC RTPO region. Exceptions to that rule that are also eligible for these dollars include bike/ped, transit, safety, and non-highway freight projects.

OVRDC is now seeking public comment on the proposed projects before final approval of funding is made.  Click here to view the list of projects proposed to receive an allocation from total funding for Round 3 of the STBG program.

Questions or comments about the proposed projects should be directed to Stephanie Gilbert, Transportation Planning Coordinator, by email or by calling the office at 740-947-2853 before October 11, 2022, at 4pm.  Additional comments will not be considered after this date/time.
