Regulations - School Zones

Ohio Revised Code (ORC) Section 4511.21(B)(c) defines a school zone as "that portion of a street or highway passing a school fronting upon the street or highway that is encompassed by projecting the school property lines to the fronting street or highway, and also includes that portion of a state highway." However, there is also a provision that "upon request from local authorities for streets and highways under their jurisdiction and that portion of a state highway under the jurisdiction of the director of transportation or a request from a county engineer in the case of a school zone for a special elementary school, the director may extend the traditional school zone boundaries" within certain limits outlined in the ORC Section. (The ORC may be accessed on-link using the Links Page shown in the menu on the left.)

The procedures for requesting school zone extensions are outlined in ODOT Traffic Engineering Manual (TEM) Section 705-2.
