Paving the Way: Central Ohio Road Construction and Safety

Red, White and Boom! 2017 takes place on Monday, July 3.

Please see below for information on closures and restrictions as well as tips for getting to and from ...the celebration easily and safely.

Red, White and Boom Travel Tips:

Arrive as early as possible on Monday, preferably before 5 p.m. (the parade starts at 6 p.m.). This can help you beat the congestion and find a good spot for viewing. Entertainment and events begin at noon.

Check the closed streets list carefully and plan to arrive well before scheduled closures. A large number of streets close Friday at 6 p.m. Those attending events at COSI or Nationwide Arena, especially, need to plan on arriving before 6 p.m.

Carpool or take COTA. To reduce parking problems and congestion, share a ride to the Boom! COTA riders will have free access to an outstanding view of the fireworks from inside Huntington Park. COTA will deploy a large number of additional buses to provide frequent service to and from several Park and Rides located around Franklin County as well as extended service on many routes serving downtown. COTA staff will be available to provide assistance downtown and at the Park and Rides. COTA riders: When you leave for the celebration, your driver will be available to tell you the best place to catch your bus to get back. Check COTA’s Red, White and Boom! Website or call (614) 228-1776 for more details. http://www.cota.com/boom

Don’t leave immediately after the fireworks. Entertainment, including live music is available after the fireworks. COTA buses leave for Park and Rides as late as midnight.

Be alert for pedestrians and cyclists. Pedestrians and cyclists are encouraged to wear bright or reflective colors for increased visibility.

A note for pedestrians from the Columbus Division of Police: At the end of the evening, pedestrians need to stay on the sidewalks and cross streets at crosswalks. In the past, some pedestrians leaving the event have walked in the middle of open streets, blocking car, bus and emergency vehicle travel. This is illegal and unsafe.

Watch carefully where you park. Various parking restrictions will be in place to help with the flow of traffic before, during and after the event.
