Nice to see they were able to open it on the target date.

I look forward to driving it. It'll probably be another month or two before I get the chance though.

I'm going to try to go see it one of the days I'm off over Christmas or New Year's Day.

I'll get to drive it next Friday going to visit family that weekend, and will drive it again on my way back North.  I plan on taking video for those interested and posting on Youtube.

Also in my post HERE WSAZ has updated their web article with video from this morning when the road was officially opened to traffic.

After seeing the many "flyover" videos posted during the construction process, it's nice to hear that 823's finally open to traffic.  It's likely to be the only portion of the original proposed OH I-73/74 corridor that will see the light of day for at least the next decade or two (and it helped that it was on a longstanding ARC corridor, for what that's worth these days -- at least enough history to get the Portsmouth bypass portion on the radar).

South Bloomfield has a limited access bypass proposed, too. I can see that happening before 2030 with all of the tremendous growth occurring south of I-270. And even though there was the I-73 Coalition some years ago, it found that the costs would outweigh the benefits and that there was not as much local support for the project because US 23 generally works very well.

Edit: ODOT has proposed a Waverly bypass but I can't find that plan.

SM-N950U

As of 4:30 Eastern, 12/14

It is NOT on Google Maps

Pieces of it are on Rand McNally maps

A few years ago, when a new ramp was built near me, Rand McNally was first to have it on their site.

It's on Bing too, but it still shows the route as closed.  I suspect that is who ODOT uses for ohgo.com mapping is bing.  Bing even has more updated Sat images than Google.

It's on Waze... I just checked it to make sure that it was on there...

I can't find it anymore on ODOT's website. It was basically a four-lane bypass to the east with one interchange (IIRC).

There is a mention in regards to the OH 762 interchange project: http://www.dot.state.oh.us/Divisions/Planning/SPR/Pic-East-West/Documents/Planning%20Documentation/Planning%20Study%20Report%20-%2006292009.pdf

When I googled 'South Bloomfield bypass' I got 3-4 planning documents (approx 150 pages each) that reference a promised South Bloomfield bypass. Several of these documents connect the proposed 'South Bloomfield bypass' with the extension of Oh 762 that was built to Rickenbacker Airport. They are all from 5-10 years ago.

Yeah, it was from around then. One had a fairly detailed outline of what the highway would look like - the number of lanes, proposed right-of-way, and so on. I see nothing in the STIP.

So, some people really couldn't wait to break the highway in. Sheesh.  :banghead:
