Some democrats, including at least two Ohio members of Congress, plan to boycott Tuesday’s scheduled speech to a joint session of Congress by Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
Officials Seek More Money Out Of Ohio Turnpike
State officials may increase tolls and close maintenance facilities as they consider ways to make more money from the Ohio Turnpike.
Ohio Department of Transportation deputy director Jim Riley says a $2.85 million study is in the works to figure out how to “unlock the value” of the 241-mile toll road across northern Ohio,
Riley’s briefing to the Ohio Turnpike Commission did not include a specific recommendation for increasing tolls. Ohio has some of the lowest toll rates in the region for trucks and passenger vehicles.
The presentation also said that two of the eight turnpike maintenance compounds could be eliminated to save money.
