More Than $28 Million Awarded to 12 Local Communities in Franklin County

January 4, 2018
14 projects receive Ohio Public Works Commission’s funding

The Ohio Public Works Commission’s (OPWC’s) Public Works Integrating Committee (PWIC) has awarded more than $28 million to 14 District 3/Franklin County projects through the State Capital Improvements Program (SCIP) and the Local Transportation Improvements Program (LTIP) for Program Year 32 (2018).

The Ohio Public Works Commission’s SCIP and the LTIP provide financial assistance to local communities for the improvement of their basic infrastructure systems. Eligible projects include improvements to roads, bridges, culverts, water supply systems, wastewater systems, storm water collection systems, and solid waste disposal facilities. County, city, village, township and other infrastructure districts located in Franklin County were eligible to apply.

“Twenty-five local projects competed for these funds, and we are pleased to be able to fund so many worthy projects. Without the funds available through the OPWC, many of these projects would not be able to be built. Franklin County and our local communities will all benefit from these upcoming infrastructure improvements.”
Tracie Davies, Columbus Director of Public Utilities and OPWC District 3 Vice Chair

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) provides administrative support for District 3 of the Ohio Public Works Commission including processing and reviewing project grant and loan requests from local governments. After evaluating and scoring the projects, MORPC and PWIC submit a list of projects to the Ohio Public Works Commission. Final project approval is given by the Ohio Public Works Commission.
