Construction Updates

Huber Village Blvd. & Spring Rd.

The intersection is expected to reopen by 7 p.m. tonight. Crews will perform final surface paving in the coming days, which may require single lane closures.

Westerville Plaza Entrance from Schrock Road

Single lane closures will be necessary along westbound Schrock Road while crews remove and rebuild the entrance to the Westerville Plaza Shopping Center. During this time, motorists should use State Street or enter near the Kroger Fuel Center entrance. Construction is expected to be complete on Friday.

State Street

Traffic in front of City Hall has been shifted toward the east side of the road to allow for mid-block crossing bumpout construction.

These improvements are a part of the City Hall Civic Green Construction project. More information about the project can be found on the City’s website.

Sunbury Road

Northbound traffic along Sunbury Road, between County Line and Maxtown Roads, is now located along the newly-paved east side of the road.

Southbound Sunbury Road remains closed for improvements through October 2017.

DETOUR: Motorists will use westbound Maxtown Road to southbound Spring Road to eastbound County Line Road.
