Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO)

In 2013, OVRDC became one of five Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs) under the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). As an RTPO, OVRDC has begun to plan a robust regional transportation system for eleven rural southern Ohio counties. The RTPO service area includes the counties of Adams, Brown, Fayette, Gallia, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence (rural area), Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton. We work on a wide range of projects, including data collection and analysis, project planning, grant writing, and project funding research. To see current projects and program structure, review the current fiscal year (FY) work program under the RTPO Program Resources links at the bottom of the page.
