ODOT Director Jack Marchbanks is imploring drivers to pay attention in work zones.
ODOT’s Matt Bruning says far too many people aren’t abiding by the state’s move over law which requires drivers to move over for any roadside vehicles with flashing lights.
If they cannot move over, they must slow down.
Last year, ODOT crews were struck 125 times while on the job.
And ODOT crews have been hit 52 times already in 2021.
162 ODOT workers have been killed over the years while working to improve Ohio’s roadways.
ODOT this year will be investing $1.92 billion into 956 projects to improve transportation across the state.
From paving projects in Marion county, to patching projects in Pickaway county, warmer weather means an increase in roadside workers all across central Ohio.
