History

The Ohio General Assembly authorized the formation of the Ohio Turnpike Commission in 1949. The turnpike is named after the first chairman of the commission — James W. Shocknessy. Construction for the road cost $326 million and was recorded the biggest project in state history, with 10,000 employers, more than 2,300 bulldozers, graders, loaders and other machines over a 38-month period.[1][2] The Ohio General Assembly is the state legislature of the U.S. state of Ohio. ... James W. Shocknessy (died July 15, 1976) was a politician from Columbus, Ohio of the Democratic party. ... The United States dollar is the official currency of the United States. ...


On December 1, 1954, the first 22-mile stretch, the portion lying east of State Route 18 opened near the present-day exit 218 for I-76 and I-80. Several motorists attended a dedication ceremony, with over 1,000 people joining a caravan, following a snow plow and a patrol cruiser, to become the first to drive the turnpike. The remaining section from exit 218 west to Indiana opened October 1, 1955.[3] Ohio 18 is an east-west highway in northern Ohio. ...

When it opened in 1955, the turnpike offered 17 access points. Since then, more access points have been provided, bringing the total number to 31.[2]


In 1998, the Ohio Turnpike Commission began phasing in the marking of exits by mile-marker. The old exit numbering system was phased out in September, 2002. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... Also see: 2002 (number). ...


Service Plazas

Typical modernized service plaza

Like many other toll roads, the Ohio Turnpike has had service plazas since its inception. Although typical freeway rest areas offer restrooms and picnic areas; service plazas differ from typical freeway rest areas, in that they also offer other amenities, such as 24-hour food and fuel service.

Beginning in 1998, The Ohio Turnpike Commission began modernizing its service plazas by demolishing the original plazas, then reconstructing them from the ground-up. Besides modern restrooms, the new service plazas offer 2 or 3 different well known fast food choices, which vary between the plazas. They also include ATMs, gift shops, travel information counters, Wi-Fi internet access, and facilities for truck drivers including shower facilities, lounge, and laundry areas. A fueling station is provided at each plaza. Facilities for overnight RV campers are provided at the service plazas located at mile-markers 76, 139, and 197.[1] Fast food is food prepared and served quickly at a fast-food restaurant or shop at low cost. ...

Service plazas are located in pairs (one for each side of the turnpike) near the following mile-markers: 49, 76, 100, 139, 170, 197, and 237. Presently, the service plazas located at mile-markers 49, and 237 haven't been modernized, and thus utilize the original buildings that opened with the turnpike in the 1950's.


The service plazas located west of Toledo (Mile-markers 20, and 49) are the least utilized along the turnpike. At some time in the future, the Ohio Turnpike Commission envisions the eventual demolition of the service plazas that are presently located at mile-marker 49, and building new service plazas between mile-markers 20 and 49.[2][3] Nickname: Location in the state of Ohio Coordinates: , Country United States State Ohio County Lucas Founded 1833 Government  - Mayor Carty Finkbeiner (D) Area  - City 84. ...

Law enforcement

Since the turnpike opened, the Ohio Turnpike Commission has contracted with the Ohio State Highway Patrol (District 10), to provide law enforcement, and assistance to disabled or stranded motorists.

Truck speed limit

In September 2004, the speed limit for heavy trucks was raised to 65 mph (105 km/h), creating a uniform speed limit for all traffic. For years, trucks had avoided the turnpike due to large toll increases in the 1990s, and because they could travel for free at the same speed on parallel highways such as State Route 2 and US 20. Truck traffic clogged the downtown shopping areas of such US 20 towns as Bellevue, Clyde, and Fremont, essentially driving away customers who didn't want to deal with the truck traffic; shopkeepers begged the state for relief for years. A road speed limit is the maximum speed allowed by law for road vehicles. ... State Route 2 is an east-west highway crossing most of northern Ohio. ...

Eventually, with some prodding by Governor Bob Taft, the Ohio Turnpike Commission lowered truck tolls and implemented the uniform 65-mph speed limit on September 8, 2004.[6] Truck traffic levels have been estimated to be 20% higher on the turnpike since these changes were made. The turnpike's 65-mph truck speed limit is unique in Ohio, as a 55-mph statutory speed limit applies to trucks on every other highway in the state. Robert Alphonso Bob Taft II (born January 8, 1942) served as a Republican governor of the U.S. state of Ohio from 1999-2007. ...


Proposed leasing

Turnpike Westbound

Ken Blackwell, the defeated candidate in the 2006 Ohio governor's race, had a plan for privatizing the turnpike, similar to plans enacted in Illinois and Indiana.[7][8][9][10] Any plans for privatizing the Ohio Turnpike will need to be re-started, if at all, under a later administration.

Toll structure

Tolls are based upon the distance traveled, along with the type, and weight of vehicle driven. As of January 1, 2007, the toll for a typical non-commercial passenger vehicle to travel the entire distance of the turnpike is $10.25.[11]


The Ohio Turnpike Commission has been hesitant to deploy an electronic tolling system; citing an apparent lack of commuter travel, as well as extensive implementation expenses. In December of 2006, the Commission indicated their intention to move forward with the implementation of an E-ZPass compatible system as a "customer convenience". [12] The system is expected to be fully functional by 2009. This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...
