The intersection of OH-682 and Richland Avenue was re-constructed during the Spring and Summer of 2010; it is now a "roundabout" or "traffic-circle." Details are available on the Traffic Pattern Changes page.

The Ridges is located near coordinates B-5 and D-8 on the campus map. It is on the hill across the Hocking River from the West Green. This part of the Athens Campus was previously the Athens Mental Health Center, a regional psychiatric hospital.
