The rest area on US 33 westbound between Pomeroy and Darwin now has modern restroom facilities. I remember it being primitive not too long ago.

It's the smallest restroom I've seen for a modern Ohio rest area (1 stall, 1 urinal in the men's, and I assume 2 stalls for the women) but it's better than what it had before. Not quite sure, but they may have installed these flush toilets in the same building that housed the primitive ones.

And for whatever reason the little kiosk shack has a map of Meigs County and an Ohio map with the city inset side showing....but no full Ohio road map on display. Though at least there are folded maps available in a brochure holder.

SR 32/Brooks Malott Road interchange construction

The proposed project will replace the existing at-grade intersection at state Route 32 and Brooks Malott Road in Mount Orab with a full interchange and provide additional safety upgrades at State Route 32 and Bodman Rd.

--

What's the purpose of building a new interchange but then making Brooks Malott Road and Bodman Road right-in intersections? Why not close both intersections?

Looks like they're trying to avoid making people back-track. I tend to agree, though, if you've got a full interchange nearby and especially if you've restricted access to that extent, just close the intersections.

That Mercy Health building at the corner has an ER. I bet that's why.

Took a picture of this at the I-71/MLK interchange a few months ago. Normally, ODOT markes freeway entrances with a BGS instead of a standalone shield, so it's weird seeing this Caltrans style sign, with the angled down arrow and direction tab below the interstate shield. Are there any more examples of this in the state, or is this just a one-off?

The entrance to US 20 East from OH 53 in Fremont has signs like that with down angled arrows on either side of the ramp entrance. This is in addition to a BGS (the BGS lists US 20, US 6 and OH 19 which are concurrent on the Fremont bypass, while the ground level shields are just US 20)

They are starting to be more common around Ohio.  In addition to the one in Fremont mentioned elsewhere, they are on the entrance to eastbound OH-126 (Ronald Reagan Hwy) from US-27 (Colerain Ave) in the Cincinnati suburbs.

The place that really could use them is the westbound entrance ramp to I-74 at Colerain/Beekman in Cincinnati.

I don't use anything on Reagan Highway as a yardstick for anything "normal" even on the sections that opened in the '90s or later though.

I just noticed another one, on North Bend Rd at the entrance to eastbound I-74 just west of Cincinnati.

Anyone missing a big ole "Keep Right" sign? Or at least part of one? Spotted in a Queensgate scrapyard back in October.

Major rehabilitation project to shut down part of State Route 7

"A major rehabilitation project will close part of State Route 7 at Crown City. The project is set to start on March 22.

[...]

ODOT says the concrete pavement in this section was constructed in 1947 and repaired in 1994 and 2013. Part of the project includes removing the concrete and replacing it will full-depth asphalt pavement. There will also be new culverts, catch basins, new guardrail, new signing and rumble strips."

I wouldn't have guessed this pavement was 74 years old! Google streetview: https://goo.gl/maps/88WB1LSyCLPw3F74A
