MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Honda says it will invest $124 million to establish a wind tunnel facility at a research center in Ohio.

A statement from the president of Honda R&D; Americas Inc. says the new facility at the Transportation Research Center will be integral to the company’s aerodynamic and aeroacoustic research and development. The center is in East Liberty about 50 miles (81 kilometers) northwest of Columbus.

Honda says the tunnel will feature wind speeds of up to 192 mph and will be capable of testing both production vehicles and racecars.

Groundbreaking for the new facility is scheduled for this summer.

Honda also says the wind tunnel facility will have enough space to provide an opportunity for customers other than Honda to use it.
