A transformation is planned for the Scioto River Corridor, thanks to public improvements.
Dublin last week outlined a plan for the realignment of Riverside Drive, a roundabout at the Riverside Drive/state Route 161 intersection, a new park and pedestrian bridge that will all act as the catalyst for redevelopment along the Scioto River.
Plans for the Bridge Street District started in 2009 and envisioned redeveloping about 6 percent of Dublin, or 1,200 acres, along state Route 161 from Sawmill Road to the Interstate-270/U.S. Route 33 interchange into a mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly, urban style environment that will attract young professionals and act as a destination for central Ohio residents.
The key to sparking redevelopment along the Scioto River, Dublin officials have said, is public improvements.
