Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC)

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 Program Applications 2017

The latest Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) project solicitation began on July 3, 2017 and applications were due to ODOT and MVRPC by July 31, 2017.  MVRPC received two 2017 TRAC applications by our July 31, 2017 deadline, which are listed below:

MVRPC then reviewed and ranked the TRAC applications that were received.  On October 5, 2017 MVRPC Board of Directors approved the ranked TRAC project list. MVRPC then forwarded the prioritized list of projects to the TRAC for final review. On October 12, 2017 MVRPC attended the TRAC Hearing at ODOT Central where our Regions TRAC projects were presented to the TRAC. The final list of projects was approved by TRAC on January 24, 2018.
