Route 23 Connect

Route 23 Connect is a corridor study to determine the feasibility of creating a free-flow connection between Toledo and Columbus. Currently, this corridor experiences congestion, unpredictable travel times, and high crash rates.

This study will evaluate multiple large scale improvements to the U.S. Route 23 corridor between Waldo in Marion County and Interstate 270 in Franklin County including an upgrade of the existing alignment, and a combination of the existing alignment and new connections to U.S. 33 or I-71. These alignments are conceptual only, no detailed alignments have been identified yet.

These alternatives will be compared on a variety of metrics, including travel time benefits, safety, impacts, and cost.
