CHICAGO — Ohio Gov. John Kasich Thursday will unveil his long-awaited plan for the Ohio Turnpike during a two-day series of press conferences across the state.
Ahead of the announcement, the Columbus Dispatch reported that the plan will call for the asset to remain in public hands and for possibly securitizing future toll revenue through the issuance of bonds. The governor might also consider diverting some of the toll revenue to finance other infrastructure projects across the state, according to the paper. The Ohio Department of Transportation might take over the turnpike from the Ohio Turnpike Commission, the report said.
