Ohio is celebrating its 212th birthday with special events at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
Several events are scheduled this month to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Route 40- The National Road.
Officials say southbound travel on State Route 315 should return to normal Wednesday morning with the reopening of the bridge over Ackerman Road. The Ohio Department of Transportation began repairs after chunks of concrete fell from the bridge last week.
Law enforcement officers from around the state began graduates of the Ohio State Highway Patrol Friday. The officers were trained to handle any circumstance including road rage.
The City of Columbus has donated eleven houses to the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. The homes lie in the way of a road widening project and will be demolished after the local Habitat chapter salvages useable items from the structures.
Transportation officials today officially opened the completed I-670 project to the public. The 30 year old highway, nicknamed “spaghetti junction”, finished a month ahead of schedule.
