A community open house regarding an improvement project for a section of Karl Road is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church, 1450 E. Dublin-Granville Road.

Construction is scheduled to begin May 7, according to the announcement from the Department of Public Service, on a project between East Dublin-Granville and Schrock roads that will include:

* Replacing existing pavement, curbs, curb ramps and sidewalk

* Installing new street lights

* Adding a left turn lane at Alpine Drive

Completion is scheduled for late November, depending on the weather, the announcement indicated. Karl Road will be restricted to one-way northbound traffic only during the project.

Representatives from the city and the contractor, Shelly and Sands, will be on hand during the open house to answer questions.
