We are pleased to announce that the Ohio Department of Transportation approved all the applications for safety funding that LJB’s transportation team submitted
The funding is part of ODOT’s Highway Safety Improvement Program, which annually supplies local governments more than $100 million for engineering improvements at high-crash and severe-crash locations. Several of the LJB-supported applications included bicycle and pedestrian safety improvements, helping communities protect their most vulnerable travelers.
During the program’s spring submission period, LJB helped secure approximately $8M in 100% state funding for active transportation and safety improvements on the following corridors, among others:
- Cleveland Avenue in Franklin County
- Limestone Street in the City of Springfield, Clark County
- Dayton Street and Xenia Ave in the Village of Yellow Springs, Greene County
- Cincinnati-Dayton Road in Liberty Township, Butler County
LJB transportation engineer Veena Madineni led the application effort. Based in LJB’s corporate office in Dayton, Ohio, Madineni is one of the nation’s first certified Roadway Safety Professionals in Infrastructure (RSP2I). She has worked on more than 70 traffic safety studies, identifying the factors that contribute to safety and mobility problems and recommending impactful countermeasures.
“I’m proud that our team’s efforts and expertise resulted in ODOT approving all the applications we submitted,” said Madineni. “I’m excited to see these safety improvement projects completed and these communities enjoying the positive impacts for years to come.”
