COLUMBUS—The Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Bill 380, legislation that will name twenty-nine roads and bridges throughout Ohio, announced State Rep. Justin Pizzulli (R-Scioto County).

Included in the bill is House Bill 320, sponsored by Pizzulli, which will designate a portion of OH-125 in Portsmouth, Ohio as Al Oliver Highway in Scioto County. Al Oliver is most well known as a Major League Baseball (MLB) legend.

“Naming this memorial highway is a small way to honor Mr. Oliver’s legacy and remind our kids they too can achieve greatness,” said Pizzulli during his floor speech. 

In addition to his MLB accomplishments, Oliver was a registered minister and ordained deacon. His legacy is also displayed on the Portsmouth Floodwall Murals. 

The legislation now heads to the Ohio Senate for consideration
