Kasich To Announce Turnpike Plan Thursday

John Kasich, Ohio Governor, will unveil his plan for the Ohio Turnpike tomorrow, Thursday, according to a source close to the office of the governor.

State officials have been studying options to “unlock value” from the toll road to raise billions of dollars for highway projects across Ohio.

One option is to lease the turnpike to a private company, then allow that organization to operate the road.

Another is to put administration of the turnpike under Ohio Department of Transportation control, and then sell bonds against future earnings from tolls.

The Archbold Buckeye will post information about the plan on as details become available.
