This week, state Senator Sean J. O’Brien (D-Bazetta) announced that the Ohio Controlling Board released $1.4 million for road improvements to support the Home Goods Distribution Center in Lordstown.
“The release of these funds is a welcome investment in my part of the state and a signal that we are well underway in our long journey to bring over 1,000 new jobs to Lordstown, which has recently been hit hard by job losses in other sectors,” said Senator O’Brien. “I was extremely happy to see this money released yesterday.”
The funds, which were released at the request of the Ohio Development Services Agency, will be used to extend and relocate Hallock Young Road, to add turn lanes and signals and to improve Ellsworth Bailey Road. The TJX facility is expected to be up and running by 2020.
