Hearing on turnpike plan set for Tuesday in Lordstown
Mahoning County Commissioner John McNally IV, Trumbull County Commissioner Dan Polivka and Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald are holding a public hearing from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday about the Ohio Turnpike.
The hearing is at the United Auto Workers Local 1714 hall at 2121 Salt Springs Road in Lordstown.
McNally and FitzGerald have already expressed concern about the governor’s plan to raise money by leveraging turnpike tolls. That’s because nearly all of that money would go toward improvements in the northern part of the state, where the turnpike is, while using the state’s gas tax for projects in the southern part.
