An article published on Cleveland.com stated that Ohio is investing $15 million in a 35-mile stretch of road outside of the state’s capital of Columbus that will act as a testing ground for autonomous and connected vehicles.

Called the Smart Mobility Corridor, the stretch of road will be outfitted with high-capacity fiber optic cable that will provide data on self-driving vehicle operations.

As part of a press event where Gov. John Kasich announced the new road, it was also announced self-driving truck vehicle company Otto would be taking a truck on U.S. 33 and also travel on part of the Ohio Turnpike, which already is equipped with a fiber network along its entire 241-mile stretch.
