Ohio Department of Transportation’s $149 million I-71 Golden Spike project relieved congestion on I-71 in Central Ohio by reconstructing the highway while expanding one lane in each direction. As a primary freight corridor and connection between Columbus and Cleveland, the improved 25-mile stretch of I-71 reduced travel times between the two cities for both passengers and freight. The project was completed more than $10 million under budget and an estimated three years early, saving taxpayer money and inconvenience to motorists.
