I-71/I-271 Feasibility Study

I-71/I-271 Feasibility Study

--------------------------------------- The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has secured funding to prepare a feasibility study on the movement of traffic from I-271 southbound to I-71 northbound; and I-71 southbound to I-271 northbound. ODOT sought funding based on inquiries from the public about the absence of connecting ramps at the I-71/I-271 interchange. Currently, the most direct routes to make these connections are via SR 3 (Ledge Road) and SR 94 (Ridge Road), so funding was also obtained to study the congestion along SR 3 and SR 94.  For more information, please visit: ODOT/Projects/I-71/I-271 Feasibility Study ---------------------------------------
