US 33 Freeway Conversion - Columbus to Lancaster

(1/19) > >>

Buck87:
Ohio is in the slow process of converting US 33 to a full freeway from I-70 to the Lancaster bypass, a process consisting of several different projects that are in various stages of planning and funding. Some of this has been discussed previously in threads about other topics, so I'm starting this thread to keep future updates about this stretch of road under one roof. Here are some of the projects:

Carroll Interchange

This is the one project that is currently underway: http://www.lancastereaglegazette.com/story/news/local/2015/03/07/carroll-interchange-construction/24568129/

Design map (pdf) - this will eliminate 2 at grade intersections and 1 traffic light, and build a new spread out interchange with new surface streets to access it.

Bixby Rd Interchange - Listed as TRAC tier 3, no funding yet, I haven't seen any drawings

Petzinger Rd Interchange - Several concepts drawn up as part of the larger Far East Freeway Study, haven't seen anything beyond that

Pickerington Rd Interchange - latest I saw on this was an article from 2013 that said Pickerington wants ODOT to build an interchange at Allen Rd instead

High St/Bowen Rd Overpass - I've seen it listed in some studies and articles, but not much other than that

Any further info or updates on any of these or any other potential work on this corridor?

The Carroll work caught me by surprise. This stretch is part of my daily (well 4 days a week) so I try to stay on top of things.

Over the past couple weeks I've noticed survey work, and now staking in the area of 33 and 270/Hamilton. The staking is in the median up to about a half mile north of 270, and is especially evident around Hamilton. I've seen stakes on the exits to Hamilton as well, and the former golf range place had a building demolished. What's up here?

Paving The Way's 2015 Glovebox Guide, just out this week, doesn't list any projects at that location, so it's certainly something minor. Maybe it's related to those sign replacement plans you posted in the other thread?

Yeah that's been some serious survey work going on at 33 and 270. I see those guys a lot on my way to work. What I think goes on is that there's a lot of crashes involving the heavy 270E to 33E merge. The Armco in the 33 median has been replaced several times in the past year after suffering heavy damage.

The demo at the mini golf place is the old batting cages. It's been sitting like that for a long time. I don't think the guy who owns the place wants to pay to have the material hauled away is all.
