Saw this on the Ohiodnr page: SOME PARKING LOTS AT ALUM CREEK STATE PARK CLOSED WHILE REPAIRS TO U.S. 36 ARE UNDERWAY COLUMBUS, OH - A highway improvement project on the U.S. 36 Causeway over Alum Creek Reservoir in Delaware County will restrict access to some nearby parking lots at Alum Creek State Park, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The causeway improvement project will affect traffic flow on the highway about a mile west of Interstate 71. Work will run through November this year and resume in the spring. Completion is set for July 31, 2005. During the construction period, parking lot entrances east and west of the work area will close to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Bridle trail users are encouraged to use the Howard Road staging area and horsemen's camp. Anglers can use any of several fishing access points on Africa Road or Lackey-Old State Road. Hikers can enjoy the seven-mile multi-purpose trail that begins at the New Galena Launch ramp on Africa Road or the Park Office Hiking Trail near the intersection of Lackey-Old State and Peachblow roads. Boaters on the reservoir are advised to stay a safe distance away from the construction site. Buoys will mark the work zone from the waterside. The embankment of the 1,090-foot causeway will be reconstructed and the pavement repaired and resurfaced. The project is needed to correct erosion and pavement problems related to the causeway's proximity to the water.
