More to Come Soon
In the coming weeks, ODOT will be sharing more of the rich compilation of data and detailed analysis collected as part of the Go OHIO effort. (SeeTargeted Industry Maps for preliminary information.) This resource will be invaluable in future planning, land use, and economic development efforts. To ensure that Ohio can take full advantage of this new resource, the data and results are being incorporated into a Go OHIO planning software tool.
