Bachelor Hall, located across from the Shriver Center, is a hub of activity with classrooms and faculty offices making it a central focus for students in several academic areas.

The $3.5 billion capital projects bill the Ohio General Assembly passed this week includes $74 million for specific projects in Miami Valley counties.

The capital budget is used for renovation or construction projects at state-owned buildings, school districts and public colleges; infrastructure grants and loans to local governments; and direct funding of “community projects of local or regional importance.”

The package is about $200 million bigger than originally presented. It includes $191 million in community projects, up from an earlier estimate of $163.5 million.

Here’s a look at which area projects will get funding.
