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. 

We are happy to report that Cannon Drive, between 12th Avenue and John Herrick Drive, is scheduled to reopen late Friday, June 21. All work is weather dependent. Lane closures along Cannon Drive will occur in July for roadway restriping, but traffic will be maintained in both directions. 


Access through the Herrick Connector into the BRT loading dock will be barricaded (concrete barriers) first thing Monday morning, June 24.


EMS should use W. 12th Avenue to access the emergency department. Please review this map for additional information.

We thank you for your continued partnership and patience. If there is anything we can do to improve communication during construction, let us know by contacting the Ohio State Center for EMS at 614-293-5102 or
