Alternate Route

Olentangy Trail – King Ave. to Herrick Dr. detour
October 10, 2017 - October 21, 2017

From OSU Facilities Operations and Development:

As early as Wednesday (10/11), the Olentangy bike trail will close between Herrick Drive and King Avenue for approximately one week. The closure is needed while crews conduct tree removal required for future phases of the Cannon Drive Relocation project. One long-term benefit will be enhanced green space along the river. Existing construction fencing will be moved temporarily to accommodate cyclist and pedestrian traffic only along Cannon Drive.
