the history of the Morse - Bethel Connector

A site called 'Neighborhood Link' has a good read about the history of the Morse -  Bethel Connector.   The  Morse - Bethel Connector would have been a road connecting Clintonville to the Bethel Road area,  a bridge across the Olentangy River....

Neighborhood Link -  Clintonville Area Commission - Morse -  Bethel Connector says:

" For over three decades, there has been debate about building a bridge over the Olentangy River to connect Morse and Bethel roads. Morse Road is located in the northern portion of Clintonville. Morse Road is located within District 7, 8 and 9 of the Clintonville Area Commission."

Originally proposed in 1968!

Slide the map to the west if you need to... Bethel Road ends at 315 and the Olentangy River. Morse Rd. ends at High Street.

In the 1990's the Morse - Bethel Connector was proposed to go through Graceland Shopping Center.  With the redevelopment of Graceland... that did not happen.

Rathbone Road was the other place mentioned.  Rathbone Road is the southernmost street in the Delawanda Park neighborhood.  Rathbone Road is the street north of Old Beechwold.

It is interesting to think of how different Columbus would be today if the Morse - Bethel Connector had been built, in the 1960's or the 1990s.  

The east west roads that cross the Olentangy are Dublin Granville Rd in Worthington (161) and Henderson and W. North Broadway in Clintonville. Last year W. Henderson Road was out of commission, along with 315 being under construction.  Not so easy to get around.  This years construction on 315 seems mild in comparison.
