Crews Begin High St. Construction Work in Downtown Columbus
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Downtown drivers and pedestrians are preparing for months of construction as crews begin to make improvements to a mile-long stretch of High St.
Crews started work Monday on the multi-phase project, which will affect High St. from Nationwide Blvd. to Fulton St. and culminate with the street's resurfacing in 2014.
The project's initial phase involves the reconstruction of the street's curb ramps in order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Workers will also repair brick crosswalks and install audible pedestrian signals at intersections.
Drivers and pedestrians should prepare for the closure of curb lanes in work areas while the ramp reconstruction phase of the project is underway.
Repair work on the brick crosswalks will take place on weekends, as well as weekdays from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Resurfacing of the approximately 1.3 mile stretch of High St. is expected to be completed during Summer, 2014.
