ROAD CLOSURES & WORK 


12/15: Gemini Extension in Delaware County
Worthington Road to Open in New Alignment Dec. 19

UPDATED OPENING DATE Worthington Road is expected to open in its new alignment between Polaris Parkway and Gemini on Monday, December 19.

Due to a change to the traffic signals during the “flash phase,” the opening of Worthington Road has been postponed to December 19. When it opens Monday:

- Northbound Worthington Road will have two right turn lanes and a left turn lane at Gemini.
- Southbound Worthington Road at Polaris: two left turn lanes, a thru lane and a right/thru lane.
- The southbound designated right turn lane on Worthington Road will remain closed until May for traffic signal work at the Worthington/Polaris intersection.

The second left turn lane on northbound Orion Place at Gemini is expected to open in January. We are waiting for the traffic signal cabinet to arrive. Without the new signal, it’s not safe to open the lane.

12/9: GEMINI EXTENSION PROJECT UPDATE
Worthington Road is expected to open in its new alignment between Polaris Parkway and Gemini on
Friday, December 16 after the morning commute.
The new traffic signal at Worthington Road and Gemini was activated to ash this afternoon. The signal is required to flash for seven days before becoming operational. Once it’s fully functional, Worthington Road will reopen. When it opens in a week:

    - Northbound Worthington Road will have two right turn lanes and a left turn lane at Gemini.
    - Southbound Worthington Road at Polaris: two left turn lanes, a thru lane and a right/thru lane.
    - The southbound designated right turn lane on Worthington Road will remain closed until May for traffic signal work at the Worthington/Polaris intersection.

The second left turn lane from northbound Orion onto Gemini is expected to be complete in January once the traffic signal work is complete. And later this month, crews will also install street signs on the new Gemini extension, which is now called IKEA Way.
