By Car

The Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center is located at 1090 Carmack Rd, Columbus, OH 43210.

  1. Take 315 to the Lane Avenue exit. This is one of the major exits for The Ohio State University. Go West (left if you are coming from the South side of the city; right if you are coming from the North side of the city) onto Lane Avenue.
  2. Once you are on Lane Avenue, pass Kenny Road. The next road (there will not be a traffic light) is Carmack Road. Take a left.
  3. Once on Carmack Road continue straight – past Arthur Adams Road - through the 4 way stop and into the parking lot.
  4. Park and pay at the kiosks located at the north end of the lot near the footbridge. If you are paying at the kiosk, you may park at spaces marked WA, WB, WC, or VISITOR. If the machine is out of paper and you do not receive a receipt, it is OK as long as you entered your license plate correctly. We recommend that you purchase parking for 1 hour and 45 minutes. (If you happen to have a pre-paid parking permit, you may park in the WA, WB, or WC spaces. Do not park in the VISITOR spaces.)
  5. Go over footbridge and follow the path straight into the compound of buildings.
  6. The Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center is the third building on the left.
