COLUMBUS, Ohio (COLUMBUS BUSINESS FIRST) — Downtown Columbus boosters say changes such as converting downtown streets from one-way to two-way or lowering the speed limit can help improve safety, retail and the pedestrian experience.

“People want a more interesting path from point A to point B,'” Taylor said. “The pedestrian-level experience is all about what makes people feel safe and want to walk that journey.”
