ODOT Safety Memorial Display in Lucas County

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District Two is now displaying a safety memorial at the ODOT Lucas County garage.

The memorial is to raise awareness of work zone safety for drivers, specifically to represent the 28 people who were killed in Ohio work zone crashes in 2016.  27 of the 28 were motorists.

“The memorial display is very sobering, thinking of those people 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 garage is located at 4080 Technology Drive in Maumee.

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