Sherwood Street work begins today
WORTHINGTON -- Bituminous overlay work on Sherwood Street from 12th Street to East Avenue is tentatively scheduled to begin today, according to a press release from the City of Worthington Engineering Department.
Sherwood Street will be open to traffic at all times. Driving lanes will be reduced to one-lane, two-way traffic under flag person control during active bituminous work. At other times, driving lanes will be restricted in width and shifted in location. Traffic under flagman control will experience brief intermittent interruptions.
No parking will be allowed when construction work is in progress. Paved areas will be reopened as soon as the new bituminous surface has adequately cooled.
Motorists are advised to reduce speed, watch for construction equipment and drive carefully in the construction zone. Be prepared to stop when approaching the work areas.
Weather permitting and construction proceeding as planned, a majority of the street work should be completed by the end of the week.
