What is access management?
Access management means developing a plan for area growth that keeps traffic moving without hindering economic development.
ODOT is conducting an Access Management Study on the US 42 corridor from the City of London in Madison County, through Plain City in Union County, to the City of Delaware in Delaware County.
The 36-mile corridor crosses several major roadways – I-70, US 40, US 33, and US 23 – and serves as an important connection bypassing Central Ohio to the northwest. These regions along US 42 are predominately rural; however, many areas in this corridor show signs of growth, such as near SR 29, the outskirts of Dublin, and near US 33.
Because US 42 travels diagonally, there are numerous skewed intersections that may become safety concerns as traffic volumes increase. This study will help anticipate the growth and develop a plan that is complementary to the US 42 corridor.
