Communities across Ohio will receive grants to improve streets, sidewalks, bridges, public facilities and infrastructure. The Ohio Development Services Agency awarded grants totaling more than $3.3 million to 12 communities through the Community Development Critical Infrastructure program.
Knox County will receive a $241,300 grant to help Pike Township replace 15 bridges and culverts. The current conditions of the bridges and culverts cause road closures and flooding. The project will benefit 1,730 people in the area.
“Communities with reliable infrastructure are better positioned for growth,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency.
