<< < (37/44) > >>

That area is a disaster as there are several developments that are wholly dependent on access to high speed roadways that were simply grandfathered in and incrementally upgraded over the decades. Another upgrade is coming: https://www.transportation.ohio.gov/projects/projects/113744

That's what I was referring to. Why waste money on something like this, instead of doing more freeway? Leave that stretch as is and build a new alignment.

That link is the very page I'm talking about. It says at the top that construction begins in spring of 2023, and it states the only things they have funding for now are a signalized RCUT and a reconfiguration to eliminate the James Rd ramp to 104 ramp weave.

It also says that the full interchange version of the project is referred to as "phase 2" and does not currently have funding.

GCrites80s:
A lot of smaller projects like this RCUT have been pushed back due to a lack of construction capacity with all the large projects currently u/c in the metro.

TempoNick:
Wouldn't it make the most sense for US 33 to follow this route through Columbus? Existing surface street sections could become state routes.

Why don't things like this ever get done. It seems like ODOT was a much more dynamic agency back in the 1950s and 1960s.
