ROAD CLOSURES & WORK

September 19th-  The last portion of the Gemini project is a closure of Worthington Road between Polaris Parkway and E. Powell Road in early October so that crews can build the new alignment of Worthington Road and connect the new intersection to the Gemini extension. Before Worthington Road closes, the new Gemini extension will open, which should help to reduce the impact to traffic.   View a graphic illustration.  For up-to-date traffic information, construction information and road conditions, 24-hours a day, visit www.Ohgo.com
