City Council Approves Clintonville Turn Lane
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- City council members have approved a controversial proposal to install a turn lane at a Clintonville intersection.
Because of the Monday evening approval, a left turn lane will soon be added to the intersection of E. North Broadway and High Streets.
Supporters of the proposal said the lane is necessary to prevent drivers from causing traffic problems by taking shortcuts through side streets in order to gain access to S. High St.
Critics of the plan fear the lane will create a slippery slope that will lead to increased commercial development in the heavily residential area.
