From Ohio Department of Transportation:

Beginning Monday, May 4, work will begin on the SR 16/SR 37/SR 661 interchange project in Granville. This project is designed to reconstruct the bridge carrying SR 37/SR 661 over SR 16 in Granville. The project will also include turn lane additions along the SR 37/SR 661 entrance and exit ramps. The intersection of SR 661 and River Road/Weaver Drive will be improved to include turn lanes along SR 37/SR 661 and along westbound River Road. The intersection will be signalized.

For the first six weeks of the project, motorists can expect minimal traffic impacts with occasional shoulder and lane closures while the contractor works on maintenance of traffic setup and prep work for Phase 1.

At this time, Phase 1 of the project is scheduled to begin in June. During Phase 1 of construction, the northbound traffic on SR 37/SR 661 will remain in its current routing; the bridge will be closed to southbound traffic and will be detoured to the adjacent interchange, west of the project, via Weaver Drive to SR16/Columbus Road/Cherry Street to Grandview Road to Silver Street. SR 16EB/WB traffic wishing to travel to the SR 37/661 interchange will exit SR 16 at the adjacent interchange to the west. Motorists can also expect various ramp closures during the 2020 construction season.
