2013Villageofcarroll.jpgThe Carroll Interchange Project

 The US 33/Winchester Road/High Street Interchange, which is also commonly referred to as the Carroll Area Interchange, is intended to improve the capacity, safety, and linkages between the local and state transportation network. The $54 million project has received Tier 1 funding status from the Transportation Review Advisory Council, and construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2015 and finish in the fall of 2016.

The US 33 corridor is designated as a Macro Highway Corridor in Access Ohio 2004-2030. As part of this Macro Corridor designation, the US 33 corridor provides an important transportation and economic link between southeastern Ohio counties and central Ohio counties. The Carroll Interchange project will further enhance traffic flow along the US 33 corridor by complementing the transportation investments made for the Lancaster Bypass and Hill/Diley Road interchange and other improvements along the corridor.

For inquiries or information, please contact Paul Pegher, ODOT District 5 Public Information Officer, by email or at 614.334.9434​.

 

 Project Updates

 
Winter 2014
With project funding approved by TRAC and the necessary environmental studies conducted, the Department of Transportation has begun the detailed design phase and right-of-way acquisition process, scheduled to last through the summer of 2014. On February 20, ODOT's project engineering team met with residents and business owners of the immediate vicinity of the interchange to discuss how traffic will be affected throughout construction and to address further concerns. Construction is presently scheduled to begin in the spring of 2015 and to be complete by the fall of 2016.


Summer 2013
In order to present and to receive public comments on the alternatives considered and the ODOT preferred alternative, a public meeting was held on April 30, 2013. Comments pertaining to the project were received during and after the public meeting. A summary of those comments and responses are provided below. Based on input received during the comment period, the Department decided to look closely at the impacts that would occur to the local business and roadway network if the access point to US 33 at Carroll Southern was removed.  As a result it was determined that the access point should be retained by way of a connector road between Winchester Road and Carroll Southern Road. A revised schematic plan of the ODOT Preferred Alternative (Alternative 3) has been provided below. The links that are provided below also include the revised intersection focus areas and the revised project evaluation matrix.

 Alternatives

 
ODOT is considering three alternatives plus a “No Build” Alternative.  Common to Alternatives 1, 2, and 3 would be the closure of access from Lockville Road, Pleasantville Road and Carroll Southern Road to US 33.  A Superstreet intersection was also examined but was found to not be feasible due to the inability of intersection to meet the purpose and need of the project.  Listed below are the conceptual drawings of Alternatives 1, 2, 3, and the Superstreet intersection.
