In September 2017, The Ohio State University began relocating Cannon Drive as part of the university’s long-term planning vision called Framework 2.0, which focuses on improving access for students, faculty and staff at Ohio State and for our patients and providers at Wexner Medical Center. 

The next phase of the Cannon Drive relocation will take place in two parts beginning May 2018.  

Phase 2, Part 1
For part one of Phase 2, the state Route 315 northbound ramp to Medical Center Drive will close from early May until mid-August 2018. During this time, if you are traveling to the UH Emergency Department from state Route 315 northbound, you may either take the Goodale Street exit or Lane Avenue exit.

FOR EMS TRAFFIC: Please see the Phase 2, Part 1 map for detailed directions to the UH Emergency Department.
FOR NON-EMERGENT TRAFFIC: Please see the Phase 2, Part 1 map for detailed directions to the UH Emergency Department.

Phase 2, Part 2
For part two of this phase, the entrance ramp to state Route 315 from Cannon Drive will close from June 11 to late November 2018. The intersection of 12th Ave. and Cannon Drive will also close from early June until August 2019. To maintain access to the north ED entrance, a new access road for EMS transport will be available off of John Herrick Drive.
