This study of interchanges along the Ohio Turnpike over an eighteen-year period suggests that age, by itself, will not be a significant predictor of interchange development. Certain interchanges have experienced rapid transformation since the opening of the turnpike. The development observed at these interchanges can best be explained by the proximity of these interchanges to large and small urban centers, by the growth rates of the nearest large and small urban centers, by the existence of extensive public facilities in the interchange community, and by the amount of traffic on the turnpike and on the roads that intersect the turnpike. Urban variables (growth rates, distances, and population sizes) do not significantly add to the explanation of variations in the amount of commercial highway property. Instead, land acreage devoted to restaurants, motels, and gas stations is significantly dependent upon traffic variables and public policy variables. /DOT/
