Columbus Mileposts | Dec. 29, 1960: Extension of Rt. 315 boon for commuters
By Gerald Tebben
FOR THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH Saturday December 29, 2012 6:35 AM
Extending Rt. 315 — this view in 1980 looks south from Rt. 161 — took place in stages over two decades.
North Side commuters got a boost on Dec. 29, 1960, when they learned that the state and city had agreed to a plan to build a four-lane expressway mostly parallel to Olentangy River Road between Goodale Boulevard and just north of King Avenue.
“It ties into plans for a projected study to make Olentangy River Road, from Rt. 161 south to the (Goodale) interchange, a part of Rt. 315,” The Dispatch reported. At that time, Rt. 315 didn’t run south of Rt. 161, and this would extend it.Ohio State University, which owned land north of King Avenue, planned to swing the next stretch of the freeway west toward the railroad tracks and over Lane Avenue, eliminating a notorious bottleneck.
The newspaper ran a map of the $3.7 million project across the top of the front page. The new road was to ride over 3rd, 5th and King avenues, eliminating long lines at lights. Plans called for a stretch of Olentangy River Road, between 3rd and King avenues, to function as an access road for the businesses already there.
The next step, the paper reported, was to submit the plan to the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads (now the Federal Highway Administration) for approval.
Columbus city Engineer Robert F. Werner said the federal government would pay half the roadway’s cost, with the city and state splitting the rest. Robert Mott, city expressway expeditor, said he’d hire engineers for the project “in a matter of days.”
After the freeway was completed through to King Avenue, the Rt. 315 project was stalled for more years while the city and Union Cemetery squabbled over land rights. The impasse was resolved in 1975, and the expressway was finally completed through to I-270 in the early 1980s.
In 1960, the city also was working on plans for an Outerbelt; but under those plans, the north leg of I-270 would have run just north of Morse Road. The Outerbelt eventually would be completed much-farther north than that point.

Point of posting this article:
This was a time when this was a great nation and we did great things.
Now this is a bankrupt nation where 47% does nothing and collects from the 53%
Our money has been squandered by both Republicans and Democrats.
It is no longer a great nation. It can no longer do great things.

Here is an example of something you've been saying for some time:
Credit where cridit is due. Hail Enzyte Bob!

I always liked the look of certain Jewish women. That stinky, unbathed anarchist is kind of cute.
THAT SAID, the reason you don't see what I see is that you grew up in a culture where the Jews and Israel are considered the good guys. I, on the other hand, grew up in an environment where most people, BOTH CONSERVATIVE AND DEMOCRAT, are sympathetic to the Palestinians, both because many are our Catholic/Orthodox/Christian brothers and because what's right is right - they had their land taken.
That's why I can analogize what they did over in Europe and why I can see who's pulling the strings here.
That's why whenever someone is fighting the Ten Commandments, or a public prayer, or a Christmas tree .... MOST of the time, it's a Jew or Atheist (i.e. EX-Jew) who has a wild hair up his ass. The Jews caused the rampant social destruction we are facing today ... not that I really care other than it costs me money and the fact that I have to step over an inordinate amount of human debris in my everyday life.
The Jews gave you free drugs and free sex and unleashed a social holocaust.
Now don't misunderstand, I generally like them as people. BUT THEIR POLITICS AND THE AGGRESSIVE WAY THEY FORCE IT ON THE MAJORITY REALLY SUCKS.
Like another poster said, at least the Muslims aren't afraid to FIGHT for what's theirs.
IT'S TIME WE CHRISTIANS (INCLUDING BARELY-RELIGIOUS ONES LIKE ME) STARTED FIGHTING FOR WHAT'S OURS.)
WE CREATED THE GREAT CIVILIZATIONS OF THE WORLD. WE CREATED GREAT ART, GREAT NATIONS, GREAT CULTURE, GREAT TECHNOLOGY, A GREAT STANDARD OF LIVING ...
WHAT DID THE JEWS EVER CREATE? WHERE ARE THEIR GREAT CIVILIZATIONS? WHERE IS THE SPREAD OF LANGUAGE AND CULTURE?
Transparency and understanding of the root of this problem will help rectify the situation.
REPEAT: Not saying Jews are bad people. Not saying they should be exterminated or deported or stripped of their assets. Just calling them out for being the communist sleeper cells that they were. They wreaked havoc on this country and it's time people understood.
REPEAT AGAIN: Even Ann Coulter seems to get it when she called out Barry Lynn asking for pictures of his Bar Mitzva.
REPEAT AGAIN: Orthodox Jews are like us. They have virtually the same values - even to the extent of being repulsed by abortion. Yes, they look weird, but they are excluded from my bashing.

Just more bottom feeding trolls waiting for the next steaming pile of excrement to be dropped into the cesspool that in Topix.
Let the feeding frenzy begin......

Prove what I say isn't true.
Better yet, listen to Alla Axelrod! This is the irrefutable truth that they do not teach you in kumba-ya colorblindness indoctrination classes in the public schools. You need a crusty child of immigrants like me to draw you a picture:
He explained to me about the Jewish-American past -- the unions, traditions, etc. I made some mental connections to Russian revolutionaries and idealists, of whom almost 80% were Jewish. Jews made the Revolution. And of course, the Russians were very quick to blame Jews for ruining their beloved Russia as soon as Socialism fell apart.

ya know, those Jewish chicks did give up the clam without any strings attached other than to not carve a swastika on her belly...refused to give head though, which is fine because then one could channel a kuhn and refuse to do so in return or worry about it being asked.

That's what has happened here. America has fallen apart ... I am calling out the parties responsible.
It's not racist or bigoted to understand cause and effect. Saying the Jews own our social holocaust is no different than saying a lot of Indians are in the hotel business, or a generation ago Greeks were in the restaurant business.
What is going on right now, is a disaster. 41% bastard babies? All because you listened to a bunch of Jewish malcontents who had a vendetta against Christianity?
Unbelievable that people can be so stupid.
