Albert M. Miller, board chairman of the Ohio Paper Co., and Columbus Mayor M.E. Jack Sensenbrenner sit in a 1909 Hupmobile before leading a procession across the newly opened Third Street viaduct Dec. 15, 1959. Through the years, several bond issues were placed on the ballot to pay for the construction of a viaduct to connect the north side of Columbus to downtown but failed. It took more than half a century for the link over the Union Depot yards to become reality when its construction was tied to that of a multi-million-dollar expressway system.
