Public Involvement

Conducting public involvement (PI) ensures legal requirements are met, stakeholder and public expectations are managed appropriately, and that the public is included in the transportation decision-making process. To achieve this, the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) PI process is designed to obtain an array of viewpoints and concerns that pertain to specific transportation and community needs. While the level of PI is dependent on a project’s type and complexity, opportunities for proactive engagement and outreach occur not only during the early stages of project planning and development, but throughout the life of a project.




The Public Involvement Manual is updated and published!
