A draft-up of a vision of the Scioto Mile... this sketch will finally come to life with the opening of the project on Thursday.



The last piece of the puzzle falls into place as the Scioto Mile opens Thursday along the banks of the Scioto river in downtown Columbus, bringing to the community an unbroken stretch of parkland that planners hope will reconnect the city’s center.

Coming up, we’ll hear from the folks at the Ohio Historic Preservation Office and also the planners behind the Scioto Mile. Join us after the news on “All Sides with Ann Fisher,” on 89-seven, NPR News.

    Is this sketch coming to life? I didn’t think that the steps down to the water level and the ivy-covered retaining wall actually are included in the final implementation.
