Westerville classes canceled until 2 p.m. due to a power outage.
Grove & Cleveland closure
For students and faculty who have finals scheduled for Friday or Saturday, please allow extra time if you normally enter campus on Grove Street from Cleveland Avenue.
That intersection on the east side of Cleveland Avenue will be closed beginning Friday morning, Aug. 2, through Friday, Aug. 16. (While the other side of Grove Street will remain open next to WD, the crosswalk at Grove Street will be closed.)
One detour to access the back of campus is Cleveland Avenue to Long Street to Jefferson Avenue which then becomes Grove Street behind campus.
The payoff from this construction is that there will eventually be a walk signal at the crosswalk at Grove Street and Cleveland Avenue. As you know, there's currently no signal there, only yellow warning signs for drivers to yield to pedestrians. The Ohio Department of Transportation tells us that the automatic signal for the crosswalk is expected to be ready in the spring.
