Gov. John Kasich unveiled a list of some $3 billion in road projects today that will be done with the help of Ohio Turnpike tolls.

Northeast Ohio projects on the list include the new Innerbelt bridge in Cleveland, and widening and reconstructing parts of I-271, I-77, I-76 and I-80.

Kasich says diverting tolls from the turnpike to other projects will move those projects ahead by as much as 13 years of more.
