Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) assists the Ohio DOT in developing a project selection process for ODOT’s largest investments. The TRAC, chaired by ODOT’s Director, also approves Major New projects (cost more than $12 million) for funding. TRAC is looking at applications more systemically, as part of a multi-modal transportation system. The new scoring criteria are designed to more readily consider projects of various modes – highways, bridges, passenger rail, transit, and freight projects – to compete for funding. TRAC projects typically cost Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) more than $12 million and achieve one or more of the following:
- Increase mobility;
- Provide connectivity;
- Increase the accessibility of a region for economic development
- Increase the capacity of a transportation facility; or
- Reduce traffic congestion.
Please see our TRAC Funding Fact Sheet for and overview of the TRAC funding program.
