what have we done for you this week?

On Monday, January 28, 2019, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced the creation of a transportation infrastructure committee tasked with studying the present conditions surrounding roadways throughout the state of Ohio as well as recommending solutions for improving Ohio transportation infrastructure to ensure that it is safe, reliable, and economically beneficial. The committee will look for solutions to increase revenue and continue to ensure the safety and required maintenance of Ohio roadways. Doug Sibila, CEO of Peoples Services, Inc. and Immediate Past Chairman of the Ohio Trucking Association, was announced as a committee member.

This week, during a series of hearings, Thomas Balzer testified on behalf of the industry on the importance of infrastructure. The committee will be issuing their reports next week. The Ohio Trucking Association is looking forward to representing the interests of an industry so crucial to Ohio communities. The analysis of current transportation infrastructure in Ohio and the improvements we suggest will not only impact commercial truck drivers, but every motorist on Ohio roadways.
