ODOT names new boss of county garagePublished 9:36am Thursday, January 31, 2013
A former deputy director of the Ohio Department of Transportation is now the new supervisor at the Lawrence County ODOT garage.
Harry Fry will take over as transportation administrator on Feb. 11 of the garage.
“I think it is a great opportunity for ODOT and Lawrence County to be able to work together by having someone of Harry Fry’s caliber, management experience and former deputy director,” Lawrence County Engineer Doug Cade said. “It will give us the opportunity to work on projects closely.”
Fry was deputy director of District 9, the regional headquarters for Lawrence County, from 2004 to 2007.
“He has worked for ODOT in the past and was a state trooper and post commander,” Kathleen Fuller, spokesperson for District 9, said.
Most recently Fry, who studied education at Ohio State University and criminal justice at Northwestern University Traffic Institute, was project manager for Prestress SVC Industries in Lexington, Ky., a fabricator of bridge materials.
Fry will be in charge of state highway maintenance, bridge and culvert repair and oversee a budget of between $2 million and $3 million.
