Traffic has clogged the new Flatrock Parkway as many high rises and apartment buildings have sprung up along it. Not to mention, Rocky Ford Road was extended across the Flatrock River to US-31. Projects have risen in northern Columbus, as locals like to call these buildings, "The Big Bullys." The name came across because This part of Columbus used to be full of mansions, which housed many millionaires. Going back to Columbus' history of being a wealthy community, Columbus once had more millionaires per capita in the entire Midwest.

Much of these resedents commute to Downtown Columbus via Flatrock Parkway. Studies showed that many would merge east on to 25th street, and then south on Washington Street, clogging up a once quiet avenue. More high rises south on Flatrock Parkway have that road clogged up as well, and at the point where Lindsey Street and Brown Street begin at 11th street, it was normal to take a 10 minute drive for just two blocks. The mayor said that something had to be done about this, and he took out yet some more neighborhoods and extended lindsey and brown streets. They begin as a brief Avenue called 27th street, and then split and run as one way streets north and south to and from Downtown Columbus. The neighborhoods that the streets tore up were half abandoned already due to the tall buildings surrounding them, so it wasn't as much of a controversy.
