This week, the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) issued approval of $500,000 to invest in infrastructure improvements on US 50/West Main Street in the Village of McArthur in Vinton County, OH.  Representative Steve Stivers (OH-15) applauded the announcement as a positive step towards the revitalization of Vinton County.

“Infrastructure improvements are about much more than the roads we drive on; for McArthur, this investment from ARC and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is about jobs and a boost for the local economy,” Stivers said.  “Between leveraging private investments and the jobs that will be created, this is a win for Vinton County and I am proud to have lent my support to the effort.”

Representative Stivers worked to ensure that funding for ARC grants was included in the appropriations under the Energy and Workforce Committee so that communities in the 15th Congressional District, like McArthur, could reap the benefits.

The proposed project will focus on improvements of 0.33 mile of roadway, in addition to building a westbound turn lane to provide improved access to a new commercial development.  It will also enhance traffic flow and improve safety for both vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

The project will create over two dozen part- and full- time jobs, and leverages $1.6 million in private investment related to the aforementioned commercial development.
