New Trash/Recycling Bin Rules

The City of Dublin now requires that trash and recycling containers must be stored out of sight, either inside a garage or screened areas in the side or back yard. Violation of the new ordinance is a minor misdemeanor. The new ordinance went into effect on September 13th.

For those wishing to store their containers in the side or back yard, that location must be shielded from the view of any adjoining property's occupants and any street "by natural landscape barriers, which will maintain a 100 per cent year-round opacity within two years of planting."

Acceptable natural screening includes columnar or pyramidal evergreens that will be touching and growing into each other within two years. Various varieties of juniper, false cypress and arborvitae are acceptable. More detailed information can be found on the City's web site. Click here.

Tuttle to I-270 South Ramp Closure

The entrance ramp to I-270 South from Tuttle Crossing Blvd. will have weekend closures for an additional 5 weekends beginning June 25th. Note that the ramp will be OPEN for the July 4th weekend.

Friday close dates for the ramp are:

June 25, July 9, July 16, July 23 and July 30. The ramp will be shut down at 10 pm on Friday and reopen by 5 am the following Monday. The recommended detour is to take Britton Parkway south to Cemetery Road, then east to I-270 or to enter I-270 from US 33 to the north of the work area.

The closure is due to work being done on the I-270 bridge over Hayden Run Road. Completion of the $1.4 million project is set for sometime in August.
Note that I-270 will be reduced to 2 lanes both north and south beginning at 7 pm each Friday.

Also be advised that the Cemetery Road entrance ramp to I-270 North will be closed the same weekends.

Reminder: Columbus is a No Text Zone!

UPDATE: The City of Dublin has also banned texting while driving. The new legislation went into effect March 16, 2011. The new ordinance prohibits sending, reading, or writing a text message or accessing the Internet while driving. To read the new ordinance click here.

While certainly no one who lives in Cramer's Crossing would even consider texting while driving, take note that the City of Columbus has now banned this distracting practice.

Columbus City Code 2131.44 makes texting while driving a primary offense, meaning Columbus Police can stop you if there is a reasonable suspicion the statue is being violated. If you are involved in an accident and the officer suspects texting may have been involved, an investigation will take place to determine if a violation has occurred. The fine for texting while driving is $150. This is unlike the seat belt law, which is a secondary offense, meaning you can't be stopped specifically because you are not wearing your seat belt.

More important details about the new ban:
  • The ban covers writing and reading text messages or e-mail, as well as using the internet while driving.
  • The ban covers drivers only, not passengers.
  • You are considered to be driving even if you're stopped at a red light or stuck in a traffic jam. You must be pulled over or parked to text legally while in your car.

Bexley, Hilliard, New Albany and Worthington are the other central Ohio cities with a ban on driving and texting.
