dakota“I moved to Olde Towne East by chance. Over the past few years, I have enjoyed being so close to local restaurants Including The Tavern and Yellow Brick Pizza. And I love being so close to Franklin Park Conservatory! Olde Towne East is changing for the better, and it helps that I know all my neighbors. ” –Dakota Green

(We're planning to keep you updated on the downtown and NES changes/updates with the 70/71 Crossroads Project.)

#CrossroadsODOT Update: Downtown Pedestrian Bridge CLOSED.

UPDATE: The pedestrian bridge over I-70 between Grant and 4th Street in downtown Columbus closed last night.

ODOT and the contractor made the decision to close the bridge late Tuesday due to safety concerns with pedestrians walking through the work zone on Fulton. The bridge will remain closed until it is torn down, which is expected sometime next month.

Work on the first of five projects to improve the I-70/71 corridor just got underway. The first project will build a new wider bridge at Grant Avenue as well as make improvements to Mound and Fulton.

The detour for pedestrians is Grant Avenue. Once the Grant Avenue Bridge closes in January, pedestrians will use the Fourth St. Bridge.
