    It seems like it might work, my biggest worry is it seems like there are several overpass projects in the pipeline around columbus and I swear every single one is using a different design.

    Most drivers have enough troubles just driving down a straight road. All these ramp designs are going to confuse the heck out of people.

    I rarely hear anyone use anything but “semis” and “Roberts Road” in the same sentence.

    I wouldn’t expect many out there, but I still think there should be sidewalks.

    Hmmm, Roberts Road. Anybody remember that late night show on channel 28 back in the ’90s where all they did was show people dancing at some club on Roberts Road? It was on every Saturday night at like 2AM.



    We can’t afford to pay for the roads we have, yet we continue to build more road infrastructure. Not surprising.



    That’s Good ‘ol Boy networks for you.

    By: Rick Reitzel

    The Transportation Review Advisory Council or TRAC approved the funding for 13 road projects in Central Ohio Thursday. Across the state, projects totaling $2.9 billion were approved through the year 2025.

    “We are going to be as creative as we can be in terms of public private partnerships, leveraging the assets that we have, sponsorships, making sure that our designs are practical but inexpensive as possible while accomplishing what we want to do,” said ODOT Director Jerry Wray after the TRAC vote. He said while federal funding shrinks, road projects still need to be done.

    Like many Central Ohioans, Jerry Wray has seen the “ODOT Sucks” sign tacked to a home along Route 161 between Columbus and Newark. Unlike you and me, though, Wray heads up the state agency that’s called out in the sign by a subject of eminent domain.

    Gov. John Kasich said Monday that Ohio will continue to aggressively move forward in planning the Brent Spence Bridge project – despite it appearing to be on life support in the Kentucky Legislature.

    “I can’t give you the timeline, but they can’t sit there and say, ‘We’re not going to have it,’ ” Kasich told Enquirer editors and reporters. “I mean, come on. That’s not probable. I know it’s going to get done.”

    $1 million uptick for transit.

    Bless you, Kasich, for finding it in your heart to give non-highway projects $1 million more. I can’t believe we’re so fortunate to live in such a transit-competent state.
