ODOT Director Tours Proposed Columbus-to-Pittsburgh Corridor

Several organizations want to create regional economic growth

The Columbus to Pittsburgh Corridor Association recently hosted a bus tour of the corridor for Jack Marchbanks, director of the Ohio Department of Transportation.

"The purpose of this trip was to demonstrate to Director Marchbanks how vital completion of this corridor is to the economic growth of the region," said Jeannette Wierzbicki, executive director of the Ohio Mid-Eastern Governments Association and a member of the association.

The tour began in Dresden in Muskingum County and continued along the corridor to the MPLX natural gas facility in Harrison County. The tour also included stops at the office of Coshocton County Engineer Fred Wachtel and at the Tappan Lake Marina for lunch.
