The Road Ahead for Ohio
Dr. Jack Marchbanks, the director of the Ohio Department of Transportation, was one of the featured speakers during the 2019 AMATS Annual Meeting on Oct. 11. The director told the more than 180 meeting attendees gathered in the Sheraton Suites Akron Cuyahoga Falls ballroom that Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s new two-year transportation budget will provide much-needed infrastructure funding for communities across the state.
Dr. Marchbanks warned though that other challenges – such as a potential rescission of about $7.6 billion under the current federal Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act and sweeping technological changes – are looming on the horizon.
