This study will collect information from communities throughout the entire state of Ohio, which is home to more than 11 million residents and is less than a day’s drive from approximately half of the population in the United States and Canada.
This study will take place over several years, focusing on a different region each year. During 2017-2018, the study will focus on communities in Auglaize, Clark, Champaign, Preble, Van Wert, Mercer, Shelby, Darke, Fairfield, Madison, Pickaway, Delaware, Union, Marion and Licking, highlighted in the map below. Approximately 1.1 million people reside in these counties in over 160 cities, villages and townships.
The Ohio Department of Transportation, along with the regional and local agencies throughout the state, manages a vast multimodal transportation system including highways and local roads, transit systems, bicycle and pedestrian pathways, and other facilities. Feedback about transportation needs in local communities throughout the study area will inform how the state maintains and improves this system as the population grows and changes in the coming decades.
