CORPO Proposes More Than $1.1 Million For Transportation Projects

Public comment period open until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 5, 2023

The Central Ohio Rural Planning Organization (CORPO) has released a list of proposed transportation projects to collectively receive $1,102,426 in federal funds during state fiscal years 2024 and 2025. CORPO is seeking public comment on the proposed projects through 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 5, 2023.  

CORPO received three requests for funding for transportation projects from three counties in the CORPO transportation planning area. The CORPO funds selection committee evaluated the submissions to determine alignment with the adopted CORPO Transportation Plan goals and objectives and ultimately recommended funding all three submissions at their full request. 

The following projects are proposed for funding commitment.

“Before making any final decisions, it’s important for residents to have the opportunity to weigh in on the proposed projects since their quality of life is most impacted. Public input ensures that decisions are well informed and consider a wide range of perspectives, concerns, and insights that we may not be aware of without this engagement.”

In July and early August, CORPO solicited projects to receive transportation funding in the CORPO transportation planning area, which encompasses the following seven counties: Fairfield County, Knox County, Madison County, Marion County, Morrow County, Pickaway County, and Union County.  

These funds may be used for construction, expansion, reconstruction, preliminary engineering, right of way, or preservation of roads and bridges on any public road; capital costs for public transit and bus terminals; bicycle and pedestrian facilities; and other transportation-related activities.

“We are excited to be able to provide these critical transportation funds through CORPO to projects in these communities."

The proposed projects recommended for funding are available on the CORPO webpage. Printed copies of the draft listing are available upon request by calling MORPC at 614-233-4138.

Public comments on the proposed projects must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Oct. 5, 2023, via e-mail to or in writing to:

Mary Turner, Senior Planner

Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission

111 Liberty Street, Suite 100, Columbus, OH 43215

CORPO will consider final approval of the funding commitments on Nov. 6, 2023, and they will subsequently be incorporated into the Transportation Improvement Program for the appropriate fiscal year if approved. The Transportation Improvement Program is a financially balanced listing of federal, state, and locally funded projects scheduled for some phase of implementation or development in four years.

For more information or assistance, please contact Mary Turner at 614-233-4138, or via email at or visit the CORPO webpage to learn more.
