The 71 to US 23 connector could be built in 18 months once the shovel was turned at a total cost of 150 million.
Charge would be 1.50 cash, 1.00 ezpass each way.
Kokosing built 6.5 miles of 4 lanes in the West Virginia mountains in only 18 months.

Estimated 25,000 vehicles a day will use it on there way north to Marion, Findlay, Toledo, Detroit and other areas.
The " WODDY HAYES THRUWAY "
I was going to disagree with you because it sure seems a lot longer going to Delaware via I-71 / US 36 than using US 23, but Google says there is only 4 miles difference from Broad and High so I guess I can't complain.

I personally think it's time to dust off John Circle's plans for an "outer-outerbelt" from about West Jefferson to about Ohio 79. That would make a lot of sense as a toll road given how Columbus has grown and continues to grow. I agree it makes a lot more sense than trying to shoehorn traffic into US 23 that could be rerouted elsewhere.

For those having a hard time visualizing the interchanges, here are the 3d images:

I-71(complete): http://www.dot.state.oh.us/projects/I-270/Pub...

US-23: http://www.dot.state.oh.us/projects/I-270/Pub...

Notice the trench where US 23 passes under Campus View intersection.

SR 315: http://www.dot.state.oh.us/projects/I-270/Pub...

Not shown are the ramps on I-270 between US 23 and SR 315 that eliminate the weaving between them.

There are way too many cars that go through that area to make it a toll. You would back up traffic to Westerville and Dublin. Not to mention people would get sick of sitting in line and simply use 315 or other alternatives in neighborhoods and cause total gridlock.

What are you babbling about ?

This would be a completely new 4 lane highway north of Polaris, Starting about a mile north of the 36 & 71 Interchange and head West Northwest to US 23 to the north end of Delaware exiting near Coover Rd, just south of Delaware State park.

How this would back up traffic to Dublin and Westerville is beyond any rational persons ability to comprehend.

The purpose is to avoid the drive, and traffic to and through Delaware and exit out out onto US 23 near Coover Rd North of Delaware, just South of the State Park.
