To totally reconfigure the North Broadway and High Street intersection in Clintonville, it would cost the city of Columbus an estimated $17-million to $19-million.

That is according to the Department of Public Service's review of the "ultimate concept" -- medians added to East and West North Broadway and four roundabout locations: Broadway and Indianola Avenue, Broadway and Calumet Street, Broadway and High and Broadway and Milton Avenue.

Another part of the plan calls for the closing of the state Route 315 ramps to West North Broadway. The evaluation does not include the cost of right-of-way acquisition.

Mike McLaughlin, who chairs a Clintonville task force responsible for reviewing the intersection changes, said he was "a little bit surprised" by the cost but was reluctant to comment further, saying the entire committee needs to review the plan.
