Berlin Township is located in Delaware County Ohio approximately 5.5 miles north of the Columbus City limits. The Township is a mixture of commercial, farm and residential properties with a total area of approximately 22.5 square miles. Centered within Berlin Township is Alum Creek Lake and State Park, a popular recreational area. Our population is approximately 8,000 residents which has been gradually increasing each year due to the popularity of the area, the Olentangy School District and the proximity of the Township to Columbus Ohio. Services provided by the Township include a Roads Department, Zoning Department, Cemeteries and Fire Department.

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.

For information about this project on ODOT’s website, please visit: www.transportation.ohio.gov/23connect.
