Scan a little north of the Airport. In the field between Central Parkway and Geller Park, you can clearly see the parallel burms of the road. It is believed that the Hopewell Road ran from the Octagon shaped work in Newark to Chillicothe, Ohio.
Another note of interest is o this map is that Geller Park is the highest point in the city of Newar, Ohio.  Burial mounds can still be see on the high point of ground there. Also. if you draw a line from those mounds to the Octagon and another to the henge, a perfect triangle is formed.
