Budget Issues Could Delay Solution For Downtown Split

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A major budget issue for Ohio could affect the state’s highways.
The Ohio Department of Transportation released a business plan on Tuesday, detailing what it believes could lead to a several billion-dollar budget deficit by 2015, NBC 4’s Lauren Diedrich reported.
ODOT crews are expected to overhaul the Interstate 70/Interstate 71 interchange in 2011, but after looking at dollar signs, that could change.
The interchange averages 1,200 crashes each year, and three accidents every day.
