Share the Road – Ohio State is an educational initiative to promote safe behaviors when walking, biking, scooting or driving around campus. We all share the road and responsibility in assuring it’s done safely, so look out for your fellow Buckeyes.

Your safety is our top priority. Plan ahead for traffic delays as construction impacts campus roadways. Ohio State continues to invest in the campus of the future. View construction phasing maps online and sign up for OSUGo text message alerts about major travel impacts so that you may plan your route accordingly. Be mindful around construction zones, avoid distractions, keep your eyes up and your earbuds out when traveling on campus. We all share the road and the responsibility in ensuring it’s done safely.

Pedestrians should use marked crosswalks and sidewalks. Motorists should keep an eye out for pedestrians, cyclists and scooter riders. Bicycles and scooters should be ridden in the road, not on sidewalks. If you’re cycling or scooting, park in designated areas to ensure accessible pathways. Never block sidewalks, curb ramps or disability access.
