ODOT MAKES $20 MILLION AVAILABLE FOR FLOWERS, BIKES, HISTORIC SITES

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will make $20 million available in 1994 to organizations wanting to plant flowers, build bicycle and pedestrian paths, and restore historic bridges and transportation buildings.
 "Ohio's transportation program means more than just planning, building and maintaining highways," said Gov. George V. Voinovich. "We are also very concerned about the environment, historic preservation and the needs of pedestrians and bicyclists."
 ODOT's Transportation Enhancement Program provides funding for a wide variety of projects, including landscaping, the construction of bicycle and pedestrian paths, and the restoration of historic transportation structures.
 Funding for these projects was established by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991. The act mandated that states dedicate a percentage of their federal highway funding to projects adding community or environmental value to their transportation systems.
 ODOT initiated its Transportation Enhancement Program in December 1991, and awarded $18 million of federal fiscal year 1991 and 1992 funds for 42 projects in March of this year.
 Further information and applications for Transportation Enhancement Program are available by contacting ODOT's Office of Planning and Environmental Services, 25 South Front St., Columbus, OH 43215.
