WORTHINGTON - Work is now continuing on McMillan Street and Ryan’s Road with the street portion of Phase 2 between Dingmann Funeral Home and Classy and Sassy/ProfessioNail building. A new asphalt surface is expected to be installed and be open to traffic by mid-week during the week beginning Sept. 4.

 

After Phase 2 is opened to traffic, work will begin on Phase 3 of the project, which will involve closing McMillan Street from Oxford Street to just south of the Classy and Sassy/ProfessioNail building. During this phase, Avalon School of Cosmetology, Classy and Sassy and ProfessioNail will be accessible from the north via McMillan Street/Ryan’s Road/Stower Drive. Malters, Shepherd & Von Holtum and Salon Seven will be accessible from the driveway on the west side of their building off of Oxford Street. Casey’s General Store will remain accessible from the south via the Oxford Street entrance. This phase is estimated to take approximately 20 working days, weather pending.


Work on the traffic signal at the McMillan Street and Oxford Street intersection is expected to begin the week of Sept. 4. Drivers should watch for changes in signal operations while the signals are being updated. Signals will be temporarily switched to four-way flashing red for periods of time. The signals will also be temporarily turned off and replaced with four-way stop signs at other times during the upgrades.


Construction of the Ryan’s Road sidewalk is expected to start during the week of Sept. 11. Businesses along Ryan’s Road will be notified either in person or via newsletter closer to the actual dates of the sidewalk construction.
