Ohio House passes resolution urging for I-73, I-74 extension
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSAZ) - The Ohio House of Representatives passed a resolution Wednesday urging Governor Mike DeWine and the state Director of Transportation to provide funding for the extension of I-73 and I-74.
State Rep. Jason Stephens says, “Expanding I-73 and I-74 will bring great development opportunities to our state. These projects would significantly benefit our workforce and economy, and provide easier access to the interstate system for millions of Ohioans.”
The I-73 extension would include an upgrade to U.S. 52 between Portsmouth and Huntington, West Virginia.
The I-74 project would include the extension of I-74 from Cincinnati to Portsmouth. Several routes are being studies for this project.
The bill, H.C.R. 31, now heads to the Ohio Senate.
