The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is widening its research focus, and representatives will visit the University to share details.

The program will take place Wednesday, Sept. 15, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Nitschke Hall Room 1027.

In the past, ODOT primarily worked with engineering researchers who studied pavements and bridges.

Members of the ODOT Office of Innovation, Partnerships and Energy have issued an invitation to the information session to researchers from several areas — business, economics, engineering, geography and planning, public administration, social sciences, and urban affairs.

Those who will attend should RSVP to Herdia Hodges of Research and Sponsored Programs at herdia.hodges@utoledo.edu or call 419.530.2844.
