State Officials Dealing with Shortfall in Funding for Road Projects

COLUMBUS, Ohio (24-7 News)--Records are showing the state is running out of money for major new road-construction projects.  

Officials in the incoming DeWine administration said they would work with members of the legislature to address road contracts which will have been reduced by almost one-billion dollars since 2014. 

Authorities say the issues stem from a 28-cent gas tax which hasn't been increased since 2005 and almost one-point-five billion dollars in turnpike bond funding which has run out.  

Governor DeWine says he plans to introduce a transportation budget in February after meeting with a blue-panel commission for recommendations.
