New TRAC Applications Being Accepted

COLUMBUS -  Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Director Gordon Proctor announced today the Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) is accepting applications for funding for the 2013 Major New Construction Program.

 This continued funding represents our commitment to improve safety and mobility on Ohios roadways, said Proctor. The TRAC understands the necessity of these projects in helping to build a world-class transportation system.

 Funding for projects approved by the TRAC has been possible through Gov. Tafts Jobs and Progress Plan.  The $5 billion, 10-year plan provides funding for projects such as the Wilmington Bypass in Clinton County, Cleveland Innerbelt, Interstate 75 in Cincinnati and a number of others around the state.

 ODOT has set Monday, May 15 as the deadline for cities, counties and other entities to have applications delivered to the ODOT district offices.  Locals are encouraged to meet with their district offices to review their applications.  Applications, guidelines and the TRAC policies are available at the ODOT/TRAC Web site: www.dot.state.oh.us/trac/default.htm and linked below.
