The Ohio Department of Transportation's Division of Construction Management provides Construction Inspector Testing in the following four subject areas:

  • Flexible Pavements Test
  • Advanced Structures Test
  • Certification for Compaction Testing
  • Traffic Work Zone Test (Note: This test is for construction inspectors only and is NOT for Worksite Traffic Supervisor (WTS) Prequalification.)

For additional information, see the Construction Inspector Testing and Prequalification FAQs document.

Please select the subject you wish to test on from the options in the registration form on the next screen.  Make sure to write down what test you signed up to complete as this information will not be included in your confirmation email.  Only one test may be completed per testing period.  If you sign up to take more than one test per testing period, your second registration will be cancelled.

Additional Information – Based on the Urgent Health Advisory for Ohio due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please note the following updates and safety protocols for all upcoming sessions of Construction Inspector Testing.

Due to limited space as a result of social distancing requirements from COVID-19, you will be limited to registering for one available testing day per month (you may register for both sessions within one day). If you register for a second testing day within a 30-day time period, your registration(s) for the additional date(s) within the 30-day time period will be cancelled.

All test takers MUST be pre-registered. Space is limited due to social distancing requirements. Any person who arrives without being pre-registered for testing will be asked to leave. Do not plan on taking the exam multiple times unless you have registered for both an AM and a PM testing spot. Additional time is needed between testing sessions to thoroughly sanitize the test room.

Please bring with you:

  • Face mask/covering
  • Government issued photo identification card
  • Non-programmable calculator (item intended and designed to be used only as a calculator)
  • Pen or pencil
  • Your MyODOT username and password

Under the new safety protocols due to the COVID-19 pandemic, attendees are still NOT permitted to bring reference materials or spec books into the testing site.  As with previous sessions, a supply of reference resources will be available on-site to borrow during testing.  Inspector applicants are expected to have knowledge and will be tested on items from the applicable resource publications for each subject area.  These include: 2019 ODOT Construction and Material Specifications (C&MS); 2017 ODOT Manual of Procedures (MOP); AASHTO / ASTM Standards; ODOT Standard Construction Drawings (SCDs), Statewide Plan Notes and Supplemental Specifications; Quality Standards for Temporary Traffic Control Devices (TTCD) & Acceptable Delineation Methods for Vehicles; and the Ohio Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (OMUTCD) Part 6 and related chapters. See Construction Inspector Testing and Prequalification FAQs for additional information.

No cell phones, tablets or laptops will be allowed. No calculators, pens or pencils will be available for loan due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Failure to bring these items with you means you will have to take the test without them.

Everyone registering to complete an exam MUST have applied for and obtained a MyODOT username and password and must bring both with them to the test in order to login to the online testing system at the ODOT Computer Training Room.  The instructions on how to obtain your MyODOT username and password are available at this link: How to Obtain a MyODOT Username and Password.

Failure to have obtained your MyODOT username and password ahead of time WILL result in being rescheduled to take the exam another day. Please obtain your MyODOT credentials at least four days before the testing date.

Please note the following summary of protocols for testing:

  1. Face mask/covering is required
  2. Temperature will be taken at door
  3. No materials will be brought into testing site
  4. Must have ID (official state or federal)

Description – Motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists face greater mobility challenges and safety risks at intersections as traffic volumes grow and congestion worsens. Agencies need safer, more balanced designs that keep people moving. Innovative intersection designs offer many safety and operational benefits, and are being built more often because they can deliver more for less. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) launched the Every Day Counts (EDC) state-based initiative to identify and rapidly deploy proven but underutilized innovations aimed at reducing project delivery time, enhancing roadway safety, reducing congestion, and improving environmental sustainability. In 2012, Intersection & Interchange Geometrics (IIG) was selected as a featured innovative technology in EDC Round-2. IIG consists of a family of innovative intersection designs that improve intersection safety while also reducing delay, and at lower cost and with fewer impacts than comparable traditional solutions. In a continuing effort to advance the deployment of innovative intersection designs, NHI is pleased to offer this training workshop to assist transportation professionals in better understanding these intersections and the potential benefits they can provide when correctly implemented.

Who Should Attend? – The target audience for this training includes state and local transportation agency personnel, and/or consultants having responsibilities for developing and designing elements pertaining to intersections and interchanges.

Instructor – James McCarthy, PE, FHWA Traffic Operations Engineer, St. Paul, MN.

Description:  This course provides a holistic approach to signalized intersections and considers the safety and operational implications of a particular treatment on all system users, including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users. Using the guide, participants learn to make insightful intersection assessments, understand the tradeoffs of potential improvement measures, and apply guidebook measures and best practices to reduce the incidence of intersection crashes. Practitioners will find the tools and information necessary to make insightful intersection assessments and to understand the impacts of potential improvement measures. The information in this guide is based on the latest research available and includes examples of novel treatments as well as best practices in use by jurisdictions across the United States and other countries. Additional resources and references are mentioned for the practitioner who wishes to learn more about a particular subject. This guide is not intended to replicate or replace traditional traffic engineering documents such as the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) 2010 or the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ (AASHTO) A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets, nor is it intended to serve as a standard or policy document. Rather, it provides a synthesis of best practices and treatments intended to help practitioners make informed, thoughtful decisions.

Who Should Attend? – Professionals responsible for design, management, or operation of traffic signals. This includes design engineers, operations engineers and technicians (advanced) of state/local agencies, consultants, and FHWA Operations staff.
