Cooling-to-Heating Transition - It's that time of year again, when the university transitions from cooling to heating.

We are working to ensure a seamless changeover, but weather variations may cause unanticipated fluctuations to interior temperatures as we progress through this transition.

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.
“Most of the major demolition work is done. The next piece is to get the utilities in place. That includes sewer and electricity,” said University Landscape Architect Steve Volkmann.
The nightly closure of the northbound SR-315 Medical Center Drive / King Avenue off-ramp, previously scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 19, has been rescheduled to begin on Sunday, September 24. The off-ramp will be closed overnight from 9 p.m. - 5 a.m. for approximately one month.
The closure will facilitate the distribution of dirt between the SR-315 on and off ramps, which is needed to begin the construction of the new Cannon Drive roadway. Emergency vehicle access from 315 will be maintained via a traffic control officer.
