It's a shame. I lived on ENB (1956) before it became a main connector. It was a nice quiet street. Oakland Park was the 'busy' street where everyone would cross over the railroad tracks to the area what is now east of the freeway. Choosing ENB as an exit for I-71 and then locating Riverside Hospital where it is doomed ENB to become a busy street. When 315 opened in the 1970s the doom was sealed.
I don't think the left turn lane will speed traffic. I think it will slow it down during rush hours because the left turn lane will back up cars wanting to go straight through the High Street intersection. In the future the City will want to extend the left turn lane further back than they are originally going to build it. A better solution for traffic flow would be to divert all traffic coming off I-71 at ENB that wants to turn left on High Street to Oakland Park, one block north, and then have them turn left on High Street and let the through traffic and right turn traffic remain on ENB. It would be a slight inconvenience to those wanting to turn left but no more than they have been dealing with to date. Oakland Park is as wide of a street as ENB. I know nobody cares about a few homeowners on ENB but as a former ENB resident near High Street this will be a shame to build this left turn lane. It's a shame that those pushing this left turn lane don't have to tolerate the daily negative impact on their quality of life as the residents of ENB will have to tolerate.
This left turn lane will compound problems during rush hours. Too bad for Broadway.
This also breaks a promise made by the City of Columbus many years ago.

What a comment. To speak up to maintain one's quality of life and property value is selfish? Perhaps the Oakland Park residents not wanting to share the traffic burden would be considered selfish. Not that I would expect them to willingly accept more traffic.
My word for you is - ignorant.

That is thinking, something government slugs don't do
