Fix Ohio Roads

 

 

EVERY DAY, WE COUNT ON OHIO’S ROADS.

For work. For play. And for our future.

It’s no surprise Democrats and Republicans agree: Safe, well-maintained roads are a smart investment in our future. And that’s especially true right here in the Buckeye State.

Only Texas has more bridges than Ohio. And Ohio has the nation’s fourth-largest interstate system with over 8,000 lane miles. That’s enough interstate to travel from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. about three times.

But our roads and bridges are deteriorating, threatening Ohio jobs and costing drivers more in higher car repair bills.

Had enough? Take action.

Tell us your Ohio highways story.
