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.
