ODOT receives preservation grants

Two grants totaling $81,000 have been awarded to the Ohio Department of Transportation by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration.

The Federal funding will be used to continue the part-time byway coordinator position for the Ohio National Road Association and to produce a revised Traveler's Guide as well as new Ohio Historic National Road Association brochures.

The Ohio Historic National Road is part of a six-state Historic National Road Corridor, from Maryland to Illinois. The National Road Corridor spans some 600 miles with more than 220 miles in Ohio including stops along the way including such places as historic railroads, bridges, barns, and homes, among other points of national historic interest.
