October Luncheon Meeting

Date & Time: 
Thu, 10/15/2015 - 11:30am

Joint meeting with ACI & SEAoO

Topic: I-270/23 Interchange a.k.a "The Trench"

(Online registration and payment available, see bottom of page.)

"The Trench" carries two northbound express lanes that bypass traffic lights at Campus View and Flint Road, spitting cars out near North Woods Boulevard. It is 25 feet deep, about 4,000 feet long and 40 feet wide. Increased population and development in Delaware County have left the I-270/Rt. 23 interchange over capacity. About 150,000 vehicles travel through the interchange each day. ODOT had to either add lanes or give drivers an alternate route. The recently completed trench does both.

September Luncheon Meeting

Date & Time: 
Thu, 09/17/2015 - 11:30am

Joint meeting with ECC

Topic: Blueprint Columbus

(Online registration and payment available, see bottom of page.)

The Department of Public Utilities is in the process of implementing Blueprint Columbus in targeted neighborhoods to address overflows that occur from the City’s sanitary sewer system during periods of wet weather. Blueprint Columbus focuses on eliminating the source of the problem, which is rain water entering the sanitary sewer. There are four components that make up Blueprint Columbus: lining resident’s sewer lateral, a voluntary sump pump program and redirecting roof water runoff away from the home’s foundation drain. Green infrastructure will be installed on right-of-way property to treat rain water that’s been redirected before it enters the storm sewer system.
