Most Central Ohioans drive on it almost every day, but there was a time before Interstate 71.

I-71 was completed through the state of Ohio in 1975.

Fifteen years before that date, the ribbon was cut on a section of I-71 running through Columbus.

10TV's Video Vault takes us back to the opening ceremonies around 11th Avenue in 1960.

While most of the video is silent, there is audio of the Buckeye Boys State Band playing toward the end.
