The Paving the Way  program was created in 1990 as a cooperative effort among the Federal Highway Administration, the Ohio Department of Transportation, the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission and the city of Columbus to improve planning and communication of road-construction projects.

Our mission is to improve communication about road-construction in Central Ohio. We also work to reinforce these important road safety principles:

  • Always use extra caution in road-construction work zones.
  • Help reduce congestion by carpooling, using COTA, biking or walking.
  • Share the road safely. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians need to be cautious in the roadway and watch for each other.
  • Drive smart, know the rules of the road and never drive distracted.
