Funds released for roadwork south of Toledo Express Airport

The release of previously approved state funds for public roadwork development south of Toledo Express Airport was announced on Tuesday, Sept. 26.

A Roadwork Development Grant of $1,300,000 will go to the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority to be used for road development in Swanton Township related to Tronair’s move to the former BAX Global building. The previously announced plans for the site include construction of a new road and roundabouts on U.S. 20A at State Route 295 and Whitehouse Spencer Road.

The move of Tronair is expected to bring 104 full-time jobs from Holland along with 110 new full-time jobs.

A completion date of mid-2019 was previously estimated for completion of the road project.
