An Ohio Public Works Commission grant for $936,478 was awarded to Jackson Township for the Borror Road Improvements Project that is planned to address current and future traffic demands, utility improvements, pedestrian facilities and address other deficiencies. The project will extend from Quail Creek Boulevard on the western end and continue east through the intersection with Buckeye Parkway.
Jackson Township in collaboration with the City of Grove City and the Franklin County Engineer’s Office is expected to spend $6,148,456 million on the improvements project. The project currently is in the detailed engineering phase, but initial work on the Patzer Ditch bridge replacement by Axis Civil Construction commenced Sept. 10, 2018.
Borror Road is expected to be closed .4 miles west of Jackson Pike or State Route 104 to Buckeye Parkway for 45 days weather-permitting. The posted detour route for eastbound motorists will follow Buckeye Parkway north to Holton Road, east to Jackson Pike or State Route 104, and south to Borror Road.
Westbound motorists will follow the detour route in the opposite direction.
All are invited to a public meeting set for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 9, 2018 at the Jackson Township Administration Office — 3756 Hoover Road in Grove City, Ohio — at which proposed improvements will be presented. Members of the engineering design team will be available to answer questions and review project design completed to date. This public meeting is open to anyone interested in obtaining additional information including right-of-way acquisition on the proposed road improvements project.
