You would be lucky to be Athens. Remember, the bypass is not for those pill heads in pilltown, it's for the trucks and drivers that would like to get through scioxy county as fast as possible.

At least your bypass will save drivers time. The one at the end of the.article for.Carrol at US 33 will just cause.the back ups.to move further towards Columbus a few hundred feet but solve little. It will however use Highway money to expand a speed trap and expand a town that serves no purpose but.to make a few National Socialist Democrats giddy with the.thought of.more land owners to oppress.

The powers that be do not want Portsmouth to grow and thrive. It is what it is by design. A college and retirement community w/ rampant welfare. Those public funds are funneled into very few pockets and they maintain complete control of the cash flow. There is so much that could be done at the river bank... There are two stages there and only one gets used twice a year. We have an east/west and north/south corridor that could draw industry but they are locked out by a controlling and corrupt local government. Don't look for change any time soon, this town sold out a long time ago.

The bypass would be great because there's nothing in dumpy Portsmouth but pillheads & trailer trash.

Roads are good - just do them right the first time so it doesn't get ripped out 10 years from now. US 23 and US 33 should be freeway from Columbus all the way to I-75 and south to I-77 and I-64.

The carroll one though will cause backups on 33 just like the light. It also expands acess on the East/ North side to farm ground which will be forced to.annex to Carroll if any business is.built do to EPA rules on sewage line tap requirements. No reason Highway funds zhould be.spent to expand a village that is just like New Rome.

Road construction doesn't bother me. Europe still uses many of the old Roman roads .... The interstates and US 23/33 will probably be relevant for the next thousand years. Just don't waste money on rework. Do it right the first time.

I hate speed traps though.

With Carroll it is more than the speed trap. Why use Highway funds to expand a village period. On the West / South side there are businesses that have been there for years, small machining firms. They have epa aproced septic tanks and leach fields. If the interchange is built the Highway will take the leach fields So as part of the project Carrolls sewer lines will be extended past McDonalds to them. They will then have to pay 3 times the in village rate for sewer per month unless they annex. Bear in mind the village of Carroll doesn't treat sewage it is floated down to the county facilities the village just marks up the rate under the therory that they can leep rates "under" control. The same for water. Village had produced water on their own and had sewage lagoons prior to a "special " loan from the County and EPA.
I have no problem with a good interchange but not this half asses on and especially not a half asses one that helps a New Rome village.
OH that loan and the connection to the county were arranged on an Emergency clause with the former County Utilities Engineer. Something is rotten not in Denmark but in Fairfield county.
