Join the Canton Regional Chamber and Stark Development Board in campaigning to keep Route 30 on the state’s highway agenda.

The Ohio Department of Transportation has a new plan for the coming decades called Access Ohio 2040. The plan’s map does not give any importance to Route 30 east of Canton, and it downgrades Interstate 77 south of Canton to a highway of state importance, not national importance. With I-77 downgraded, we have to ask whether Route 30 east will ever get any attention. You can comment on the plan until Jan. 15. We urge you to do so. If you think these highways south and east of Canton are important to business, please tell ODOT in an e-mail: For more information about Access Ohio 2040, go to: To study the Access Ohio 2040 draft plan, go to: Please comment on or before January 15, 2014, to keep our region's highways on ODOT's agenda.
