About the project

The project is designed to reconstruct the bridge carrying State Route 37/State Route 661 over State Route 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 Route 661 and along westbound River Road. The intersection will be signalized. 

The $9 million project is expected to begin in spring 2020 and completed in fall 2021.


Expected impacts to traffic

Construction began in Spring 2020 and will be undertaken in two phases. Construction schedule is subject to change.

Current Traffic Pattern

2021 Construction Season

Spring/Summer 2021:

  • Weather permitting, on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 the SR 37/SR 661 bridge over SR 16 in Granville will be open to two-way traffic (one lane in each direction).  Ramp access at this interchange will be as follows:

    -Ramp from SR 37 to SR 16 EB: Ramp will close for 28 days for the remainder of the ramp to be constructed.
    -Ramp from SR 16 WB to SR 661: Traffic will only be permitted to turn right and travel north on SR 661.
    -Ramp from SR 661 to SR 16 WB:  This ramp will only be accessible by right turn from SR 661 SB.
    -Ramp from SR 16 EB to SR 37:  Traffic will only be permitted to turn right and travel south on SR 37.

    All other traffic will need to follow the singed detour to the SR16/Columbus Rd/Cherry Street Interchange.
  • Beginning in late June 2021, SR 661/37 NB and SB traffic will travel on the new side of the bridge.
  • Beginning in late June 2021, entrance to SR 16 WB from SR 661 will be open to SR 661 SB traffic only.
  • Beginning in late June 2021, traffic from SR 16 WB will be able to exit to SR 661 NB.
  • Beginning in late June 2021, traffic from SR 16 EB will be able to exit to SR 37 EB.
  • Beginning in late August 2021, River Road will close for 21 days to WB traffic. This closure will be at SR 661 and extend approximately 500 feet to the west. EB and WB traffic will be able to travel in both directions from SR 16 to the west side of the closure. River Road traffic wishing to get to SR 661 will be able to take SR 16 WB and exit to SR 661 NB.  

Fall 2021:

  • The SR 37/661 bridge and all ramps are expected to be open
  • River Road will close at SR 16 at the end of the project. River Rd will end in a cul-de-sac and will no longer be able to access SR 16.

Spring 2022:

  • Remaining roadway work on SR 37/661 to be completed. Some short term lane closures should be expected during this time.
  • River Road will close at SR 16 at the end of the project. River Rd will end in a cul-de-sac and will no longer be able to access SR 16.
