Richland County will benefit from the Ohio Bridge Partnership, a plan unveiled during a news conference Thursday by Governor John Kasich. It calls for the Ohio Department of Transportation to provide $120-million in funding to replace 200 county bridges and 20 municipal bridges across the state over three years. Three bridges in Richland County will be replaced in the first year, including two on Pleasant Valley Road and one on Five Points Road in Franklin Township. And Chief Deputy County Engineer Adam Gove says having bridges open and in good condition is important to public safety and commerce. Gove hopes to get as many as a dozen more bridges replaced in the second and third years of the Ohio Bridge Partnership. Funding for it comes from cost savings at ODOT, leveraged Ohio Turnpike revenue, and federal money.
