ODOT Safety Memorial Display in Wood County

ODOT Safety Memorial Display in Wood County until Tuesday, August 22

BOWLING GREEN (Friday, August 18, 2017) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District Two is displaying a safety memorial at the northbound I-75 rest area just south of Bowling Green through Tuesday, August 22.

20170626_152015The memorial is to raise awareness of work zone safety for drivers, specifically to represent the 26 roadside workers who were killed in Ohio work zone crashes in 2016. 

20170626_152018“The memorial display is very sobering, thinking of those workers and their families,” said Patrick McColley, ODOT District Two’s Deputy Director. “Each one of those killed never went home.”

“We want people to feel that emotional impact and understand decisions you make while driving have consequences,” McColley added.

The memorial is traveling to each ODOT District Two county garage this summer and autumn to spread awareness of work zone crashes.
