Governor Kasich's transportation funding plan released this week would give a boost to a project to build a new interchange at Martin Luther King Junior Drive and I-71 in Cincinnati's Uptown. The plan calls for starting construction next year on the $107 million project.
Local officials have already been making their own plans for the interchange and the second of two planning studies is being held tonight. Uptown Consortium CEO Beth Robinson says the project is expected to radically change the face of Uptown and increase traffic on MLK.
Update: Judge Black has granted the temporary restraining order. This means Ohio is now prohibited, in the event of Arthur's death, from issuing a death certificate that doesn't indicate that he was married and name his spouse.
State Rep. Peter Beck of Mason, indicted Friday on 16 felony charges, will not be resigning from his seat in the Ohio House, his lawyer said Monday.
"He has no intention of doing that,'' Konrad Kircher, the Mason lawyer who is defending the Republican lawmaker told WVXU. "These are just charges. He plans to fight them, clear his name, and put this behind him."
