Reminder: Portion of Grant Ave. to close today

map detail

As work continues on the current road project on the far east side of the Columbus Campus, a new project will close a portion of a street on the west side of campus. Beginning Wednesday, a small portion of Grant Avenue is closing for about one year.

The portion of Grant Avenue that will be closed is in red on the map below. It’s one half of the block directly behind the bookstore (marked as “DX” on the map) where it connects to Mt. Vernon Avenue. The sidewalk will remain open.

The primary alternate route to use as a detour is North Sixth Street to Grove Street, marked in yellow on the map.

The City of Columbus is closing the road for a construction crane. A developer is renovating a privately-owned building into apartments at the site and the crane will be placed next to the building.
