Welcome to ORIL

Ohio's Research Initiative for Locals (ORIL)
is Ohio's new research program for Local Public Agencies (LPAs). The purpose of ORIL is to provide research support for local agencies to address problems specific to the local roadway system.

The program is administered by a 15-person board composed of County Engineers, City Engineers, a Township Representative, Academics and ODOT Technical Experts. The board is supported by non-voting members from the Ohio LTAP Center, ODOT's Research Program and the FHWA Ohio Division Office.

For more information about the program, the board members and the general process administered by ORIL, explore the site starting with the links to the left.
