Interested in weighing in on transportation improvements being planned around our community? The Ohio Department of Transportation is hosting several opportunities in October for you to learn more about projects being considered near our area and they want your input. These sessions will be held in an open house format - no formal presentations will be given so you can stop by any time during the meetings to view exhibits, talk with project team members and share your thoughts.

This session will focus on projects being planned to improve travel and access along the Red Bank Expressway and several neighboring streets.
