Enrolled Senate Bill 264 was signed by the Governor on June 14, 2011 and took effect on January 1, 2012. The bill is the result of collaboration between ODOT and a stakeholder committee in response to legislative direction contained Senate Bill 1024 (2010).
SB 1024 directed ODOT to establish less stringent access management rules, mitigation measures, access spacing and mobility standards for highways with annual average daily traffic of 5,000 vehicles or less. The bill also directed ODOT to work with stakeholders to develop proposed legislation to codify, clarify and bring consistency to issuance of access permits based on objective standards. In response, ODOT convened an Access Management Stakeholder Committee (AMSC)
comprised of 25 participants from a cross section of stakeholder groups, including legislators, private development and business interests, local governments and freight and transportation interests.
The committee’s work, referred to as Access Management Discussion Forum, was facilitated by Huntington Traffic Solutions. The AMSC worked through 2010 developing legislative proposals and reported to the Legislative Assembly in January 2011. Committee members continued to work with 2011 Legislature to develop SB 264.
