ODOT Construction

The Ohio Department of Transportation is conducting a major construction project that directly impacts visitors to the Municipal Court, particularly those parking in the garages.

STAY UP TO DATE:

Beginning September 11, 2021
  • E. Fulton Street will become eastbound-only between High St. and 4th St., making Fulton St. a one-way street from High St. to Grant Ave. This new traffic pattern provides additional capacity for drivers on E. Fulton St. to access I-70 east.
ODOT's 70/71 Phase 4R/6R Ramp Closures  
  • Ramp from 70 eastbound to Front St is closed.
  • Access from 70 eastbound to the Front St Parking Garage is via 70 eastbound to Livingston Ave ramp, to 4th St northbound, left onto Mound St westbound, left onto High St southbound, right on Sycamore St westbound, right on Front St northbound to Front St Parking Garage.
  • Access from 70 westbound to the Front St Parking Garage is via 70 westbound to Downtown exit to Mound St westbound, left onto High St southbound, right on Sycamore St westbound, right on Front St northbound to Front St Parking Garage.
  • Beginning July 1st, the Front St Parking Garage will be available to monthly & handicapped parkers ONLY while construction work is completed in the garage by the TID & Corna Kokosing. The restrictions are expected to last for about 4 months. Other nearby parking options include the Columbus Commons Garage (4th St & Rich St) and the River South Garage (Front St & Rich St)
Front Street Changes:
  • Front St Bridge over 70 is expected to close mid-July. Front St will remain one-way northbound until the bridge closes to give the TID & Corna Kokosing time to make changes to Front St Parking Garage’s entrance/exit. (The current, existing entrance/exit arrangement would not work if Front St had been switched to two-way.)
  • Convert Front St to two-way traffic once Front St Bridge over 70 is closed in mid-July, which means folks will be able to access the garage coming southbound from Mound St.
