The Point Improvement Project
The City of Delaware is developing plans to improve traffic flow and safety on William Street (US 36) and Central Avenue (Ohio 37) at The Point intersection. Proposed improvements include replacing the railroad bridge and widening William and Central to two lanes in each direction underneath. Additional improvements will include improved pedestrian access, turn lanes, and gateway features. The project is currently in the planning phase.
The purpose of the Point project is to reduce congestion and improve safety along the eastern US 36/SR 37 corridor within the City of Delaware. In addition to reducing congestion and improving safety, improved access management along the corridor has also been identified as a secondary need.
The project is anticipated to cost about $26 million. The City has secured both state and federal funding sources to cover 75 percent of the total project cost. Delaware is pursuing additional grant and funding dollars to reduce the estimated $6.4 million local funding contribution.
