Title: To increase the prima facie speed limit on Dublin-Granville Road between Hamilton Road and the City of New Albany corporation limit from 25 miles per hour to 35 miles per hour; to repeal any and all speed limit ordinances and resolutions on said roadway within this section; and to declare an emergency.

Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes increasing the prima facie speed limit on Dublin-Granville Road between Hamilton Road and the City of New Albany corporation limit from 25 miles per hour to 35 miles per hour.

Dublin-Granville Road is a major thoroughfare that passes through the City of Columbus, and in absence of corporate boundaries, the speed limit at the aforesaid location would be 35 miles per hour. Presently, however, the prima facie speed limit on the portion of Dublin-Granville Road between Hamilton Road and New Albany is 25 miles per hour in conformance with Ohio Revised Code Section 4511.21 because the section is less than one mile long.

Both recent roadway improvements and traffic engineering studies conducted by the Division of Traffic Management within the Department of Public Service support increasing the current prima facie speed limit on Dublin-Granville Road between Hamilton Road and the City of New Albany corporation limit from 25 miles per hour to 35 miles per hour. Ohio Revised Code Section 4511.21 allows for the establishment, by ordinance, of a higher prima facie speed limit than that stated in that section if, given existing conditions, the higher prima facie speed limit is reasonable and safe. The purpose of this legislation is to effect said change.

2. EMERGENCY DESIGNATION
Emergency action is requested to ensure the prima facie speed limit of 35 miles per hour is established when the aforementioned segment of roadway reopens in September.
