Default Driving through Columbus - Take the bypass or go straight through

I am going to visit a friend in Kentucky and I will be heading down I71 through Columbus.  Would you guys drive through or take the bypass?. I am going to try to time it so I pass through mid day to avoid rush hour traffic.

Straight down 71.  You'll be fine....make sure you pay close attention to the signs though as it can get a little tricky at the 71/70 interchange.

Strait through. As long as you make it before 3:00!

I agree, this area is marked well but it can be a little confusing.

if i am remebering correctly, just stay in the left or center lane. when you go through the right hand 90 in town, be prepared to jump lanes. it happens fast.

I drive really slow in the ultra fast lane, while people behind me are going insane. I use public toilets and i piss on the seat. I walk around in the summertime saying how bout this heat. Sometimes, i park in handicap spaces, while handicapped people make handicapped faces.
That's right, i'm an *******.

and whatever you do bypass the chit hole Cincy. You get off one of the exits and you'll be stuck for hours.

I would take 270 (bypass) West from 71 and then take 315 South (2nd exit).  315 will dump right back into 71 South and you avoid the split.  This is the best way period.

Good info, thanks again. I remember from a few times I have driven to Cincy years ago  that the bypass seemed to take forever to hook back up w/ 71.
