Summit County Receives Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funding

Jul 11, 2022 - Akron, OH

Summit County Engineer Alan Brubaker, PE, PS is pleased to announce that additional bridge funding is coming to Summit County as a result of the passage of the Federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). BIL awarded funding to states on a formula basis. The state of Ohio received $96.7 million in bridge formula funding in 2022. The Ohio Department of Transportation has tasked the County Engineer’s Association of Ohio’s new Bridge Formula Program with scoring applications and awarding the funding to counties. So far, Summit County will be receiving $5,196,700.00, with additional funding opportunities available in future rounds of the Bridge Formula Program.  

The Summit County Engineer’s Office applied for and received funding for the following bridges:

  • Ira Road Bridge over North Fork, Bath Township, $745,000.00
  • South Main Street Bridge over Nimisila Creek, New Franklin, $560,000.00
  • Snyder Avenue Bridge over Tuscarawas River, Barberton, $1,200,000.00
  • Christman Road Bridge over Nimisila Reservoir, Green, $1,172,000.00
  • Granger Road Bridge over Yellow Creek, Bath Township, $1,519,700.00

“BIL funding will help close the gap between need and available funding for our bridges”,  says Engineer Brubaker, “we will continue to seek additional funding to improve our aging infrastructure.”
