The Ohio Department of Transportation District 1 hosted its annual Truck and Loader Roadeo. 

The Roadeo is a friendly competition between ODOT equipment operators which requires them to maneuver a truck or loader through a series of obstacle courses that mimics what they could encounter on the job. 

Highway Administrator for District 1 ODOT, Rod Nuveman says the Roadeo allows the employees to show off some of their skills in a competitive way.

"After the winter you know you get kind of solo there plowing snow so you don't get a chance to see your co-workers so this is just a good chance to get them all together. And a little friendly competition and some bragging rights," says Nuveman.
