Access Management Regulations
Access management is the planning and implementation of
strategies to provide standards for the type, design, location, and
frequency of driveways, intersecting streets, and other points of
vehicular access to public roads.
The Ohio Revised Code Section
5552.01 to 5552.11 allows counties in the State
of Ohio to regulate access to county and township roads in
unincorporated areas of the county to promote traffic safety as
well as efficiency, and to maintain proper traffic capacity
and traffic flow.
The implementation of access management provides a systematic
method for the approval and design of new driveways, intersections,
or other points of vehicular access to public roads. When access
management techniques are applied, highway congestion is reduced,
traffic delays are minimized, highway capacity is preserved, and
safety is enhanced.
