Gov. Ted Strickland, Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher and Ohio Department of Transportation Director Jim Beasley announced Friday program details for a $100 million investment in Ohio’s logistics and distribution infrastructure as part of the Ohio Bipartisan Jobs Stimulus Plan.
The Ohio Department of Development, headed by Fisher as director, describes the Ohio Bipartisan Jobs Stimulus Plan as a $1.57 billion package designed to create new jobs while laying the foundation for future economic prosperity in the state. The group said that the Logistics and Distribution Program will help create a seamless multimodal transportation infrastructure across the state, linking rails, roads, waterways and airports. Strickland and Fisher say that this infrastructure investment, combined with what they call Ohio’s strategic location, will spur economic development and is expected to create thousands of jobs in Ohio.
