MEETING NOTICE ONLY:

Notice of TWO Scheduled TRAC Meetings

Transportation Review Advisory Council to hear Final Comments
on New Investment Prioritization Criteria

COLUMBUS – Ohio’s Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) will convene a special meeting on Thursday, December 4, at 10:00 a.m., at the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Central Office in Columbus. No voting will occur at this meeting.

At the December 4th meeting, TRAC members will hear final comments on investment prioritization criteria for selecting the state’s future major new transportation projects.

Under the new investment prioritization, major transportation projects will be judged on three major categories: transportation factors, economic growth and development, and local/private investment commitment.

Among the new scoring criteria will be a benefit/cost ratio to measure the public benefit of the project rather than just the transportation problem, a new environmental category to gauge air quality impacts of a project, and an intermodal connectivity category to score whether projects connect modes of transportation. Future projects will also be evaluated on how they position land for redevelopment, reclaim brownfields and improve access to job centers and job ready sites.

The investment prioritization criteria and comments submitted to the TRAC can be found online at www.dot.state.oh.us/trac/Pages/InvestmentPriority.aspx
