By Evan Weese, Staff Reporter - Columbus Business First

Marysville is thinking big with future development along the automotive-heavy employment corridor tracing Route 33 in Union County.  The city plans to acquire 203 acres of what it calls rare shovel-ready land, laying the groundwork for a hub of advanced manufacturing and research-and-development activity.

 

Marysville economic development officials see the proposed 33 Innovation Park generating as many as 2,100 jobs with an annual payroll of $103 million, building upon the more than 50 automotive companies that have sprouted up around Honda of America Manufacturing Inc. ... Marysville is in contract to purchase three parcels, owned by two families, for a total of $4.8 million.

By Dean Narciso, The Columbus Dispatch

Posted: October 12, 2016 - 12:01 AM

 

The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded a $6 million grant to Dublin, Marysville and Union County to install technology to improve travel along Route 33.

 

The funds will be used to expand fiber-optic networks, install road sensors and retrofit school buses, snowplows and other vehicles with technology that will allow them to share information.

 

The Northwest US 33 Smart Mobility Corridor already is home to more than 50 automotive-related companies, including Honda and the Ohio State University Transportation Research Center.

Is this being driven by Honda or by Columbus exurban sprawl?

 

It sounds like both.  Honda Manufacturing is located northwest of Marysville, and is driving growth there.  Then the southeastern part of Union County is also picking up growth from the Dublin area and getting some big developments like Jerome Village.

Honda demonstrates 'smart' intersection that warns drivers of jaywalkers, red light runners

Honda Motor Co. has fitted a downtown Marysville intersection with cameras, computers and artificial intelligence that can warn equipped vehicles of a jaywalker out of sight around a corner or a speeding car about to run a red light.

 

But engineers could not predict how much time and money it will take before every intersection is similarly "smart" and standard equipment in a vehicle includes phone-sized displays that flash a warning and politely announce, "Pedestrian crossing; check your surroundings."

 

Honda R&D Americas Inc., the carmaker's research arm, demonstrated the system to Gov. John Kasich and other officials Thursday. There's still a lot of research to be done, and the carmaker has started talks with city officials and the Ohio Department of Transportation on other places to test smart intersections.
