Paint the Plow Program
In an effort to enhance awareness and promote safety, ODOT - District 9 has introduced a successful, creative community outreach initiative to southern Ohio called “Paint the Plow.”
Paint the Plow is a program in which area students are invited to paint an ODOT snow plow blade with original artwork to represent their individual school. While the project was first introduced in ODOT's District 4 in 2012, District 9 first sponsored its own program in 2014 in its eight-county region of Adams, Brown, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross and Scioto County.
In addition to being visible when in full service during the winter-weather months, the blades are used at events within the school's community not only to increase public awareness, but also to promote safety and foster greater appreciation of both ODOT and the schools' art programs.
