Transportation Planning, Safety and Feasibility Study Program
Conducting studies and plans help OVRDC assist member counties with transportation issues. The role of OVRDC as a Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO) includes the opportunity to assist our member counties with safety and feasibility studies that often will lay the groundwork for larger funding applications and bigger project planning.
Last year, OVRDC coordinated a total of four transportation studies and helped with more transportation studies and plan upgrades than in any other year since we first became an RTPO seven years ago. The next upcoming Request for Proposal (RFP) is expected to be January 10, 2022, so be ready to submit a proposal or contact our office at any time to discuss other available transportation funding.
