DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — More than a dozen local governments in western and southwest Ohio are backing a study for a 99-mile river corridor intended to spur tourism in the region.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers expects to begin developing a master plan for the stretch of the Great Miami River from Sidney in western Ohio to Dayton and Hamilton north of Cincinnati.
The Dayton Daily News reported Sunday that the plan's estimated cost is $250,000. The proposal has been dubbed Ohio's Great Corridor.
The Miami Conservancy District and Montgomery County obtained commitments from 15 local governments for the 50 percent local funding share.
Army expects to start work when the money is in hand.
