Description

An eight-month Columbus Dispatch investigation of the Ohio Department of Transportation found hazardous and sometimes-deadly driving conditions for motorists passing through highway construction zones and other irregularities. The investigation shows "ODOT has moved toward greater self-regulation among contractors by reducing its staff of full-time construction inspectors 43 percent and relying more heavily on manufacturers to test own products at asphalt and concrete plants."
