Why are we holding a Virtual Open House?

Do to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak the Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has prohibited mass gatherings and the CDC has recommended using social distancing  to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  Public involvement meetings are very difficult to perform while practicing social distancing.  Due to these issues, ODOT is now taking its public involvement meetings to the internet where social distancing can be easily be performed while engaging with the public about transportation projects.

The purpose of this virtual open house is to explain the overall project, present potential impacts, answer your questions and receive your input.
