Construction is well underway at Crooked Can Brewing Co. and Old Hilliard’s “mini North Market” concept called the Center Street Market.

The 16,000-square-foot, $3.5 million, open air market at Center and Wayne streets on the former NAPA Auto Parts store site is expected to open by the middle of October, reports This Week News.

Florida-based Crooked Can Brewing Co. will anchor the market and will be joined by 11 other tenants including Bakes by Lo, the Cheesecake Girl, Dumplings of Fury, Meatball Mafia, Pokebap, Rime Time Pops, Serendipity, Women that Farm, Wicked Lobstah, and two more that have yet to be determined.

One issue Hilliard City Council member Les Carrier foresees with Center Street Market is its lack of on-site parking. Old Hilliard has 336 parking spaces, according to Albert Iosue, Hilliard’s public-services director, per This Week News. However, an additional 105 parking spaces could be added for $400,000. Iosue expects to introduce a parking-lot proposal to City Council on June 10.

Rob Fry of Plain City, Andrew Sheeter of Orlando, Jon St. Julian of Hilliard and Tom Coughlin of Columbus formed CCB Columbus LLC that is developing the market.

In a move that nicotine-addicted members of Gen-Z are sure to find totally “un-lit,” state lawmakers have raised the legal age for tobacco sales to 21.

The bill, which passed as part of the new state budget, would have included a provision exempting people who turn 18 before October 1 from the new restrictions—but Governor Mike Dewine vetoed that portion of the law.

Products such as cigarettes, rolling papers, vaping products and chewing tobacco are now only available for legal sale to those 21 and up.

Sorry, kids. You’ll just have to wait a few more years to start wasting money on products that damage your health in countless ways!

New construction at I-70 split means more traffic for now

Changes coming to a busy stretch of highway near Children’s Hospital could lead to serious-short term traffic headaches.

According to a report from 10TV, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has announced two changes to I-70 downtown which are set to begin this August.

First, traffic moving in both directions of I-70 will be shifted to the westbound bridge that carries traffic from the east side, past downtown, for one year. The bridge will host one westbound lane, as it does right now, along with the two eastbound lanes of I-70.

In the next phase, Parsons Avenue will close between East Main Street and Mooberry Street for 60 days to demolish the existing roads, eventually re-building I-70 east over Parsons Avenue. Drivers should use Grant Avenue instead.

ODOT officials say that bringing I-70 to the top layer will eliminate the need for lane changes that lead to congestion and can cause accidents.

These changes mark the first of many planned projects for roadways in this area.
