Sawmill Road Traffic Jam!

Posted in: Coventry Woods
Sawmill road traffic jam is getting un-bearable. I have complained to the Ohio Department of Transporation, to find out that it is under the jurisdiction of Columbus City.

Therefore, I call them at 645-8376, and email them at streetsofcolumbus@columbus.gov.

It just takes more people effort to get do something for us living around sawmill.

Come on everyone, let's make a call and email them. I have attached my email note below.

Good afternoon,

The traffic on Sawmill Road on the north-side of I-270 is becoming unbearable. There are a lot of new commercial development, as well as mass dense housing (condominiums) development. Not to mention various developments on further north -- Sawmill Parkway, which are either in development or near completion. There is also a large Dublin high school (or middle school?) next to Sawmill road, inducing a lot of constant-traffic pain as well throughout the whole week, as they try to turn into Hard road from Sawmill or vice versa.

All these contributes to the stand-still of morning traffic, especially between Tuesday~ Thursday from 7:30AM through 9AM, as well as in the evenings. Even the weekends also see heavy traffic.

May I remind you that these traffic jam is not due to construction at all. None. There were simply not enough roads, or not enough highway exits to accomodate the growing traffic.

There are really no good alternatives for residents living around Sawmil to head down-town. Route 315 North bound becomes 1 lane after I-270, and Route 33/Riverside Dr are winding through many traffic lights and no connection to the I-270.
