Cooling-to-Heating Transition - It's that time of year again, when the university transitions from cooling to heating. Facilities Operations and Development maintenance personnel are beginning to shut down certain cooling systems and perform the proper maintenance to bring heating systems online. This change-over can lead to customer inquiries about buildings being too hot or too cold. We are working to ensure a seamless changeover, but weather variations may cause unanticipated fluctuations to interior temperatures as we progress through this transition. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we perform these necessary...
As early as Monday (10/16), King Avenue lane closures will occur in both directions between Cannon Drive and the SR-315 overpass through mid-November. Two-way traffic will be maintained and motorists should anticipate delays during this time. The lane closures will accommodate tree removal and trimming as well as the installation of a wall and sewer line required for the Cannon Drive relocation project.
The closure of the Olentangy bike trail between Herrick Drive and King Avenue, previously scheduled to be in place from Wednesday (10/11) through approximately Wednesday (10/18), has been extended through Saturday (10/21) due to weather.
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.
Ohio State has plenty of postcard views. Many can be credited, in part, to Luther Nolan and the FOD Landscaping team. Nolan works to beautify campus in the warm months and keep the sidewalks clear during the winter. Nolan has been a part of the university since 1995, when he started as a student. He then became a full-time employee in 2001. View Nolan's video story. Video of A&People - Luther Nolan
Construction cones and chain link fences may obscure some of the view of the historic Mirror Lake District , but the pace of progress is moving fast at the iconic setting on The Ohio State University campus.
