ODOT to feature truck at U.S. 30 rest area
ODOT personnel on hand to talk snow and ice operations
LIMA (Tuesday, November 29, 2016) The Ohio Department of Transportation is inviting the public to see and touch a snow plow truck while it is on display this Thursday at the U.S. 30 eastbound rest area west of Van Wert.
An ODOT truck will be on display on Thursday from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the rest area. ODOT personnel will be available to showcase the special features of the truck, explain its operation and discuss snow and ice control methods.
“We want to offer the public the opportunity to see our truck which is the most visible representation of our agency and is critical to our effectiveness in snow and ice control,” said Kirk Slusher, ODOT District 1 deputy director.
The Ohio Department of Transportation maintains the state's largest man-made asset--the transportation system. ODOT's mission is to provide the safe and easy movement of people and goods from place to place. As a $2.8 billion per year enterprise, ODOT invests the bulk of its resources in system preservation through maintenance, construction and snow and ice operations.
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
