Completed Studies

CH 27 Corridor Study (2014)
The CH 27 Corridor Study evaluated the short-term needs and a long-term vision as an important Minor-Arterial roadway serving eastern Scott County. Current and future traffic issues were identified on the corridor. Corridor preservation and access management were also evaluated along the corridor.  As part of the study, concepts were evaluated for the expansion of CH 27 to four-lanes with trail/sidewalk between CH 21 and CH 44 in Credit River Township. The recommended concept layout will help guide the development of a project currently programmed for construction in 2019.
