The Ohio Department of Transportation is celebrating a milestone.
It has spent $2,000,000,000 during the 2010 state fiscal year on a variety of projects that span all forms of transportation.
More than 800 projects were awarded some of that funding, and ODOT was able to assist local transportation partners with about $500,000 for an additional 346 projects. One of those projects is taking place right here in Zanesville. Crews plans to pave a portion of Interstate 70 for a project...

Since 1992, ODOT has put $100,000,000 into these bike and pedestrian routes.

You will begin to see ODOT's orange cones along State Route 555 in South Zanesville tomorrow.

The project is worth more than 900 thousand dollars.
