Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
Check Out Our Transportation Literature
May 25th, 2011
Our transportation campaign is in full-swing, and we have fact sheets and postcard sign-ons to support our efforts. Our postcards will be going to Ohio Department of Transportation Director, Jerry Wray, requesting that ODOT prioritize fixing our distressed roads and bridges and expand transportation choice. Our fact sheet is a great complement to this and spells out exactly why we need to improve and diversify Ohio’s transportation system.
