Grove City Traffic Updates

Richard Avenue Waterline Replacement Project Through July 31

Phase II of the Richard Avenue Waterline Replacement is underway. The existing waterline will be replaced between Dennis Lane and Southwest Boulevard. The project involves waterline replacement, spot curb repairs and street resurfacing on Jerome Court, Irwin Avenue and Dennis Lane.

Construction continues weekdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Traffic will be restricted to one lane between Dennis Lane and Southwest Boulevard during work hours. The lane restriction will serve as a rolling closure with a temporary traffic signal location on Richard Avenue that will vary throughout the day. Lane restrictions and intermittent closures are expected through the end of July.

Drivers are encouraged to use extra care when traveling through the construction area.

2018 Street Maintenance

Residents on a street selected for maintenance will be notified by a door-hanger placed on their door no less than 48 hours prior to construction activities. The door-hanger will indicate the date, duration, and construction activity to be performed, as well as any special information a resident might need including contractor contact information, roadway parking restrictions or minor access restrictions. “No Parking” signs will be posted in appropriate areas no less than 48 hours in advance of any parking restriction.

Visit the 2018 Street Maintenance web page for the updated schedule.

Although the City strives to keep maintenance inconveniences to a minimum, at times the work required necessitates street or lane closures and temporary sidewalk and driveway closures. Your patience is greatly appreciated as we continue to create a community residents can take pride in. If you have questions concerning the timing of these projects, contact the Grove City Service Department at 614-277-1100.

Drivers are encouraged to use extra care when traveling through all construction areas. All construction is weather dependent.

Construction and road closure updates will be sent via the “From the Grove” E-newsletter and on the City’s Facebook and Twitter pages. For additional information, call the Grove City Public Service Department at 614-277-1100.


Ohio Department of Transportation I-71 Widening Project

The Ohio Department of Transportation South Side “Mega Fix” may affect your travel on Interstate 71 between Columbus and Grove City or beyond.

Lane and ramp closures are permitted during off-peak times, the specific timeframe depends on the number of lanes closed and traffic volumes on the ramp or on that section of roadway. Daytime lane and ramp closures are permitted in some locations between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., depending on traffic volumes. All lanes and ramps will be open by 5 a.m. on weekdays. Every effort will be made to provide prior notification of lane closures on I-71. Review the closure chart for additional information.

Additional materials about the South Side “Mega Fix” are on the Ohio Department of Transportation District 6 website including a project fact sheet, a graphic showing the final configuration of I-270 and I-71 south and how ODOT will keep you moving during construction.

Another way to stay up-to-date is to download the OHGO app for real-time traffic speeds, live cameras, personalized notifications and more.

The five-mile ODOT construction project will build extra lanes, new bridges and exit ramps. The $113 million project will be under construction for three years with completion planned for the Fall of 2020.

Drivers are encouraged to use extra care when traveling through all construction areas. All construction is weather dependent.
