ODOT’s Big Digs Ohio road construction funds,running on fumes, are about to get refueled on the Ohio Turnpike. Governor Kasich last week announced that the state would borrow against future turnpike revenues -- and raise tolls -- to pay for a backlog of road projects off the Turnpike. Those would include Cleveland's Innerbelt Bridge and long-awaited road construction in Medina, Lorain, Akron and beyond.
