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. Please review the current FY work program under ‘Resources’ below to see current projects and program structure. To read our 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan see the links below.
