With harsh cold and snow forecast for much of the state in the next few days, officials in Ohio’s Department of Aging are urging precautions for older people who could be at increased risk of weather-related problems.
ODOT Creates “Division Of Innovative Delivery”
The Ohio Department of Transportation is creating a new division to focus on finding alternative funding for the financially-strapped agency.
ODOT Director Jerry Wray announced the Division of Innovative Delivery yesterday. Last week Wray said ODOT was exploring the idea of highway sponsorships, which are now allowed on federally-operated roads.
The agency is considering other cost reductions, including privatizing rest stops and the Ohio Turnpike.
