Jack Marchbanks will become Ohio’s next Department of Transportation (ODOT) chief, having been appointed by Governor-elect Mike DeWine this week. Marchbanks, a career ODOT administrator, moves into the top job having served in a variety of senior posts within the department.
The transportation budget is expected to rocket through the General Assembly in early Spring. The state’s transportation trust fund, comprised of gas-tax monies, is forecast to run a structural deficit in near-term years.
Ohio’s manufacturers are dependent on effective movement of freight and we look forward to working with Jack. 1/10/2019
