TOLEDO, Ohio — The Ohio Department of Transportation is now accepting input from the community on how they can best improve the I-475/Airport Highway interchange.

A feasibility study is being conducted to explore options to improve safety and reduce congestion at the interchange. The study proposes a multi-use path along Airport Highway from Holland-Sylvania Road to McCord Road. Additional improvements would include upgrades to sidewalks and crosswalks, curbs and gutters, roadway drainage, and lighting.

Feedback may be submitted until June 16, through this link.

TOLEDO, Ohio — ProMedica Russell J. Ebeid Children’s Hospital will be receiving $17 million from the state of Ohio, Governor Mike DeWine (R) announced Monday.

The money will be used to renovate existing space in their inpatient pediatric psychiatry unit, establish an ambulatory outpatient building, and work with local partners to develop services and programs to meet the community’s needs.

This is a part of the Pediatric Behavioral Health Initiative, an $84 million investment, to increase access to care and expand capacity across the state.
