How are we doing?
Our mission at ODOT is to provide the safe and easy movement of people and goods from place-to-place. And, we strive daily to reach that goal by: improving safety; taking care of what we have; making our system work better; and, enhancing capacity. Ohio’s network of roads, bridges, and highways is the state’s most valuable physical asset – totaling $115 billion.
