Walk/Ride on the Bypass Available this Wednesday!!

Wednesday 11/2 marks the official opening of relocated OH73- the Wilmington Bypass.  There is ribbon cutting at 1pm at the railroad overpass of the bypass.  Before that ceremony, we have been working with ODOT to establish a public access time that morning for walkers, runners and bikers to use sections of the bypass and tour it before it opens.

You can walk, run or bike on a portion of the bypass from 9am to 11am on Wednesday Nov. 2.  You will access the bypass at the westbound ramp from US 68, you will be able to park on the ramp there and staff will be there to direct. You'll need to sign a liability waiver which ODOT staff will provide.  The weather is forecast to be cool but clear and hopefully you can enjoy the morning out on the new highway.

Please spread the word to your organizations who might be interested.

WHAT:     Public Access to the Bypass
WHERE:    US 68 westbound access ramp
WHEN:     9am to 11am on Weds. 11/2
