Etna, Pataskala to receive MORPC funds

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission has announced funding for two road projects in Pataskala and Etna Township.

Pataskala will receive $3,579,872 to resurface Mink Street from Broad Street to Havens Corners Road.

Pataskala City Council on Dec. 10 agreed to issue another $2.4 million in debt to resurface the rest of Mink Street in the city limits.

The city also has applied for a $374,999 grant and $125,000 interest-free loan from the Ohio Public Works Commission.

Etna Township is expected to receive $7,624,896 in federal funds to improve the entrance and exit ramps off Interstate 70 at state Route 310 and to extend the five lanes with pedestrian and bicycle markings from the 310 bridge over I-70 north into Etna Township.

The project will be done in conjunction with the state's $3.5 million replacement and widening of the bridge on Route 310 at I-70.
