The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) invite the public to participate in virtual meetings about a new study of U.S. 23 in Delaware County and the surrounding areas (PID 112768). This study, led by ODOT and partners at MORPC and TMACOG, will determine the feasibility of creating a free-flow connection between Columbus and Toledo.
The meetings will be held virtually and can be attended by joining online at https://publicinput.com/23connect or by phone at 1-855-925-2801 with meeting code 4637.
Due to the large geographic area and population affected by U.S. 23, the study area has been divided into smaller groups. The same information will be presented at each meeting, so if someone cannot attend their community's meeting, they may attend any meeting that fits their schedule.

Ahead of these meetings, ODOT is conducting an online survey to gain a better understanding of the public’s perspective. Area drivers and residents are asked to take the survey at publicinput.com/23connect.
Individuals who require interpretation services or a reasonable accommodation to participate in this meeting or who wish to request a paper copy of the survey or project materials should contact Anthony Turowski, project manager, at (740) 833-8186 prior to June 30, 2021. Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, sex, age, national origin or disability.
Public comments may be submitted at transportation.ohio.gov/23connect or directed to Anthony Turowski. While there will be many opportunities to provide feedback throughout this study, comments following these meetings should be received by August 16, 2021.
