Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio signed a $7 billion transportation budget that will target highway work and is expected to pay for 96,000 jobs over the next two years.

Nearly $6 billion will be used by the Ohio Department of Transportation for 1,600 highway construction and maintenance projects.

Local governments will receive about $600 million to go toward road and bridge improvements. An additional million will go toward supporting public transportation, raising the annual contribution from $7.3 million to $8.3 million in 2016 and again in 2017. 

The bill takes effect July 1.
