The Ohio Department of Transportation has released the GoOhio Report. ODOT describes the report as “a new way to prioritize investments that will bring Ohio the greatest return on transportation investment. ODOT is the first state transportation department in the U.S. to develop this type of economy-focused, data-driven approach to multi-modal transportation investment in targeted industries.”
The Cincinnati Streetcar is listed as one of the transportation investments:
A 4.9-mile loop will connect University of Cincinnati students and neighborhoods with Downtown, creating 1,800 short-term and 9,000 permanent jobs, and an estimated $1.4 billion in new development. The streetcar is part of a larger strategy to make Cincinnati more walkable, vibrant –and easier to get around.
