Franklin County Transportation Improvement District Completes Demolition of Pedestrian Bridge over High Street
The Franklin County Transportation Improvement District (FCTID), on behalf of the Franklin County Board of Commissioners, demolished the pedestrian bridge previously located over South High Street, between Fulton Street and Mound Street on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020.
Demolition of the pedestrian bridge was the first phase of the FCTID’s Franklin County Parking Facilities Improvement Project, which aims to maintain and improve access to parking facilities associated with Franklin County’s Downtown Complex (34 East Fulton Street, 373 South High Street, and 399 South Front Street).
The Franklin County Parking Facilities Improvement Project is one of the first projects implemented by the FCTID since the board was created in the spring of 2019. Future phases of this project will aim to minimize construction impacts to Franklin County parking facilities related to the ongoing Columbus Crossroads project.
The FCTID continues to seek opportunities to facilitate multi-jurisdictional collaboration throughout Franklin County to bring future projects to implementation.
The FCTID is administered by the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission on behalf of FCTID’s board of trustees.
