ODOT Creates "Division Of Innovative Delivery"
The Ohio Department of Transportation is creating a new division to focus on finding alternative funding for the financially-strapped agency. ODOT Director Jerry Wray announced the Division of Innovative Delivery yesterday. Last week Wray said ODOT was exploring the idea of highway sponsorships, which are now allowed on federally-operated roads. The agency is considering other cost reductions, including privatizing rest stops and the Ohio Turnpike.
