Intersecting Medina's Uptown are 4 major arteries; three state routes (SR 3, 18, & 57) and U.S. Route 42. The major divided highways of I-71 (north to Cleveland and south to Columbus), I-76 (points east including Akron/Canton, Youngstown, Pittsburgh and east coast destinations), I-271 (northeast Ohio, Buffalo, and Toronto), and I-80 (12 miles north on I-71) permit efficient movement of freight and passengers to 60% of the population of the United States in a days drive.
