Responsive & Forward Thinking
Street Grid System
There’s no question that a variety of transportation options are critical to the success of any mixed use, urban environment. We’re looking at new street connections throughout the Bridge Street District and improving our current infrastructure, with new pedestrian and bicycle options on the horizon.
Current Transportation Projects
Riverside Drive Realignment and Roundabout Project Complete
The Riverside Drive underpass is now open, allowing southbound drivers to travel under S.R. 161 and bypass the roundabout.
Tuller Road has also reopened in the right-turn only configuration. Drivers are permitted right turns only at this intersection, which is a permanent condition. John Shields Parkway is available to drivers who would like to turn left.
The City of Dublin thanks drivers for their patience during the Riverside Drive Realignment and Roundabout project.
As part of these improvements, a roundabout at the S.R. 161/Riverside Drive intersection opened in August 2016. The roundabout is designed to improve safety and efficiency and to accommodate traffic volumes well into the future. It also restores turning movements to the intersection, which had been restricted since the early 1990s. Along with the roundabout opening, a section of Riverside Drive between S.R. 161 and Tuller Road was shifted to the east to open up riverfront park land. The park is currently being designed.
Along with the roundabout and realignment, the City also made the following improvements:
- Sanitary Sewer for Riverside Drive realignment
- Park grading
- Coordinated utility installation and burial construction of duct bank for both AEP and Dublink
270/33 Interchange Improvements
Getting into and around Dublin will soon be safer and more convenient thanks to improvements to the I-270/ U.S. 33 interchange. The interchange improvements will reduce crashes, enhance capacity, reduce congestion and promote job growth. This Ohio Department of Transportation project is underway with various traffic pattern changes between now and 2017. You’ll find updates, information, detours and local alternate routes at 27033interchange.org.

Still to Come
Bikepaths | Cycle Track
A “cycle track” will follow the pedestrian bridge and a future John Shields Parkway bridge to form a loop around Bridge Park and Historic Dublin. The track will combine the user experience of a separated path with the on-street infrastructure of a conventional bike lane.
The Future Pedestrian Bridge – Connecting and Enhancing our Community
When the pedestrian bridge that spans the Scioto River in the heart of Dublin is built, it will serve as an important connection between Historic Dublin, the future riverfront parks, and all the commercial, retail and residential spaces on the east and west sides of the river. And it will be an iconic City of Dublin landmark, symbolic of the connectivity and inclusivity of our community.
Sidewalks | Crosswalks | Underpass
Sidewalks will accommodate pedestrian activity and outdoor seating. Sky bridges are planned to link two garages with neighboring buildings. Plans call for a pedestrian tunnel underneath Riverside Drive near John Shields Parkway. There will be crosswalks at traffic signals along Riverside Drive to help pedestrians safely cross.
While providing the facilities necessary to make walking, bicycling and transit more attractive modes of transportation, the need for cars and the ability to conveniently park them is not going away. New streets will include on-street parking facilities in most areas, and as part of the discussions with various developers, we’re evaluating partnership opportunities for parking structures in a few locations and the use of podium parking to help address this need.
