College Street speeders

College Street residents Robert and Sharon Henry told Groveport City Council on Dec. 16 that traffic, including speeders, is on the increase on their street. Robert Henry noted that cars coming into Groveport on Old Hamilton Road traveling at 35 mph or more have sometimes “gone airborne” when they crossed over the railroad crossing on College Street. He said one such vehicle crashed into the porch on his home. He also expressed fears the speeding traffic could endanger the safety of students walking along College Street to Groveport Madison Middle School South. He asked council to consider placing signage warning drivers to reduce speed as they approach the railroad crossing and into the 25 mph area on College Street. Groveport City Councilman Ed Dildine suggested that maybe rumble strips could be installed on Old Hamilton Road to warn drivers to slow down before reaching the railroad tracks. City officials indicated they would look into the issue and seek some solutions.
