SR 161 and Linworth Road Improvements


The project will add a two way left turn lane to SR 161 and left turn lanes at the Linworth Road intersection.  It will add shared use path (south side) and sidewalk (north side) on SR 161 from Thompson Street to Bellbrook Ct.  It will also add sidewalk on Linworth Road from Westbrook Ct to northern project limit near Mason Alley (eastside). Franklin County submitted a MORPC funding application for this project in 2020. ODOT is funding the design at 100%. Worthington (50%), Columbus (45%) and Perry Township (5%) are all contributing toward the local match for RW and Construction. Franklin County will perform the Construction Administration and Inspection.
