Why are we holding a virtual public meeting?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, Ohio's 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 conducting public involvement meetings virtually so that social distancing can easily be performed while engaging with the public about transportation projects.

Internet Access Difficulties
