Analysis of Ohio's Fine and Coarse Aggregate Reserve Balances

Industry and Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) experts are concerned that some areas of Ohio may have critically low supply balances of quality aggregates in the future. Understanding the markets for this vital resource will help the Department better prepare for any shortfalls or cost increase in the future. The goal of this study is to produce unbiased research findings that will aid ODOT in determining areas that may have future fine or course aggregate supply shortfalls, estimate a dollar impact of those shortfalls, and provide appropriate policy options to deal with any shortfalls. The results from this research will help ODOT be better prepared to understand and potentially advocate for policy options that can mitigate or minimize localized aggregate shortfalls before any cost increases occur. This research will provide an estimate of where localized aggregate shortfalls might occur, and an estimate of the cost to ODOT for those shortfalls.
