The Department of Public Service has requested an additional $23,631.81 in design fees for pavement resurfacing and ADA ramp replacements to be included in the project.

The project is located in the “Northwest” (5) and “Northland” (6) Community Planning Areas in the vicinity of the intersection of Karl Road and E. Dublin Granville Road, as well as Minerva Park. A portion is also located just south of Worthington between Godown Road and Olentangy River Road.
