When people think of Ohio, they often think cows, corn and football. While these are certainly elements of Midwestern life, the city of Columbus, like many other Midwestern cities, is a growing hub of urban life with a population that’s never seen a decrease.

The Morse Road Corridor, home to a diverse group of residents, is a major local thoroughfare in Columbus that for consecutive years, until recently, had been named the city’s most dangerous intersection due to the frequency and severity of its accidents. In this episode of The Big Road Fix, we take a closer look at what’s made the intersection dangerous, how it’s been improved, and how the community has responded.

The Big Road Fix is a new a video series from GOOD and Progressive exploring the evolving culture of transportation in cities across America. Together, we hope to improve the roads that connect us all.

Throughout 2015, we're partnering with Progressive to harness the power of information. Each week, we'll put data under the microscope, asking how statistics and research can empower us to challenge our understanding of ourselves and the ways we navigate our world. Knowledge is the first step on the way to progress: Let's take this information and drive change in the world together. This is Data for GOOD.
