COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Gov. Mike DeWine helped to open the Fulton Street ramp to I-70 east on Tuesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.  

The new ramp will restore direct access from Downtown Columbus to I-70 eastbound. 

The construction of the ramp is part of the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Downtown Ramp Up, a $1.4 billion project to rebuild the I-70/71 corridor through downtown Columbus.
