Clintonville "If you build it..."

Cornfield From 'Field of Dreams.'  "If you build it they will come."  Not a baseball diamond in a cornfield.

If you build a turn lane on N. Broadway in Clintonville more traffic will use North Broadway rather than side streets, according to at least one Clintonville resident who lives on North Broadway.

Clintonville does not have cornfields.  An established area on the cities north side, Clintonville is primarily residential.

I had to stay up and watch the news last night to see what neighbors in Clintonville were arguing about. - Clintonville Neighbors Argue Over Busy Intersection     The solution for some Clintonville residants? A turn lane that would allow south turns on High Street from N. Broadway. Traffic from I-71 exiting via the North Broadway exit can not turn south on N. High St.  The two proposals both put  turn lane on North Broadway. 

Who opposes a turn lane on North Broadway? People  who live on North Broadway.

"The left-hand turn lane, we believe, is just like Kevin Costner said in Field of Dreams: 'If you build it, they will come', " an opponent of the proposed lane told 10TV News."

The Clintonville Commission will be the decider.

Growing pains.  They hurt sometimes.

Thanks for the comment Clintonville is NOT growing.  It is an older established area, pretty totally built out for  a long, long time. The newest homes on E. North Broadway are probably from the 1920's.... maybe there is something there from the 1940's.... there are some beautiful grand homes on that road.  It is a busy street.

Traffic coming off I-71 may or may not be growing.

Hi Maureen... To turn or not to turn, that is the question.  I was very relieved (after seeing the title of this post) that on the day after the election that this was not a political post about Hillary's SoS confirmation vote!  :)

Nothing more political than NIMBY or in this case it is front yards rather than back yards. People on the side streets don't want people driving on their street...  people on E. North Broadway do not want their street widened.

Maureen - compared to Toledo ... everything in your area is growing.  :)

Columbus is growing... or was... we'll know sometime in the future. 

I loved Akron and Dayton when I lived there (one city more than the other but I won't say which) but I am glad I am in Columbus of all places to be in Ohio.
