When completed this $1.5 million project will better facilitate traffic flow, eliminate head-on and high speed right-angle collisions, reduce speeds and carbon emissions, prevent the need to widen US 62 in the future, and better maintain the rural character of the area. It will be paid for in part by a grant and no-interest loan from the State of Ohio, city capital fund revenues and a land donation by the New Albany Company. A traffic study confirmed that conditions at this intersection met state requirements for a traffic control device such as a roundabout.
- Both directions of US 62 will remain open for the duration of the project but there may be slight delays and flaggers depending upon the phase of construction.
- Greensward Road at US 62 is expected to be closed in July for four to six weeks. Detours will be posted. New Albany Country Club members can access the club a number of ways during the closure, including: Yantis; Ogden Woods; or Greensward from Dublin-Granville.
- Around mid-August, Lambton Park Road at US 62 is expected to close for approximately one month. Detours will be posted when this occurs.
Construction impacting vehicular traffic should be complete at year’s end. Landscaping and trees will be installed Spring 2018. Register for “the LIST” city e-newsletter at www.newalbanyohio.org/subscribe/ for continuing updates.
