Cincinnati approves application for transportation funding

Cincinnati City Council last Wednesday passed unanimously an emergency ordinance authorizing an application for funding for several local transportation projects, which is due April 20.

The funding, from the Federal Surface Transportation Program grants and Congestion Mitigation Air Quality grants awarded by the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments, would be applied to several projects being considered by the City's Department of Transportation and Engineering (DOTE), including:

If awarded, local match funding for project development and management costs would come from existing and future DOTE capital improvement program project accounts.
