For the next two months, OVRDC is asking for counties, cities, villages, and non-profits to add your future transportation projects to the regional priority project list.
Every two years, in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Transportation’s State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) cycle, OVRDC updates the Long Range Transportation Plan Regional Priority Project List (Appendix B). Projects must be included on this list to be eligible for OVRDC Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) funding and potentially other future funding. OVRDC also uses this list for various other reasons. The current priority project list is online here.
“It’s very important to keep us informed about transportation projects you are planning. Not only so that the projects can be eligible for our Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) funds, but so that we can help keep you informed of other potential funding opportunities. We work hard to stay up to date on new funding as it becomes available, and we compare that information to the projects that we know need funding in our region and try to make connections. Connecting projects to funding is one of our main focuses as the Regional Transportation Planning Organization,” said Stephanie Gilbert, OVRDC Transportation Planning Coordinator.
Please use this form to submit projects to be added to the list. The updated project list will not become official until adopted by the OVRDC Executive Committee in the spring of 2023. The deadline to submit projects to the list is January 31, 2023. You may also submit projects by contacting Transportation Planning Coordinator, Stephanie Gilbert at email@example.com or 740-947-2853.
