The City of Delaware, with the support and guidance of the Ohio Department of Transportation, has initiated the Veterans Parkway study, which is an outgrowth of earlier efforts known as the US 23/US 36 Connector and the Delaware Southeast Bypass.
The current roadway system causes trucks to use William St. in Delaware for access to US 36/SR 37, which in turn connects vehicles traveling between I-71 and US 42 and US 23. This brings trucks through a residential area, creating congestion, inefficient movement of goods and people, and raising safety concerns. The Veterans Parkway project was identified in the 2001 City of Delaware Thoroughfare Plan to provide an additional east-west route, southeast of the City connecting US 23 and US 42 to US 36/SR 37.
The purpose of this multi-year effort is to use technical expertise and public input to determine whether there is a need, and if so to develop possible concepts, for the proposed Veterans Parkway corridor and alignment.
