US 33 widening project moving forward

The Ohio Transportation Review Advisory Board (TRAC) has released the proposed funding list which includes $6 million in funding for the final engineering and detailed design for the widening of US 33 in Meigs County. This is the final important step in getting the project in the system for the final construction funding, which has a preliminary estimate of approximately $175 million.


“ODOT, ODOT District 10, the board members of TRAC, and Representative Jay Edwards have been incredibly helpful in moving this much needed and long overdue project forward,” said Perry Varnadoe.


Varnadoe believes this is the first major transportation project funded in Southeast Ohio in over a decade.
