Dean C. Ringle, Franklin County engineer in partnership with Jackson Township and the City of Grove City has announced the western phase of construction on White Road from Hoover Road to McDowell Road will begin March 31 and continue until the end of October, weather permitting.

Improvements will include new pavement, curb, sidewalks and waterline.

The project is broken down into two closure phases totaling 180 days, weather permitting. Traffic will be detoured with local access maintained.

The posted detour route for westbound motorists on White Road will follow McDowell Road north to Stringtown Road, west to Hoover Road and south to White Road.

Eastbound motorists will follow the same detour in reverse direction. Motorists should expect increased congestion and delays during construction.

Jackson Township will hold the contract, and the Franklin County Engineer's Office will supervise the building of this $1.9 million improvement by Shelly & Sands Inc. Funding is through the Ohio Public Works Commission, Jackson Township, the City of Grove City and Franklin County.
