Speaker of the Ohio House William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Bill 174, which honors Ohio’s former governor and U.S. senator, George Voinovich.

House Bill 174 designates the bridge that will span the Cuyahoga River in Cuyahoga County and will be a part of Interstate 90 as the “George V. Voinovich Bridge.” The project has an approximate completion date of late 2016 or early 2017.

“I am very pleased that this bridge will bear the name of one of Ohio’s great leaders and public servants,” said Batchelder, who sponsored the legislation. “This is a man who has dedicated his life to serving his community, our state and our nation, and his work has left a lasting impression on me, my colleagues and the people of Ohio.”

House Bill 174 has bipartisan co-sponsorship and passed from the House by a vote of 92-5. It now moves to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
