Motorists dropping off and picking up students at Central School may need to find an alternative route and expect delays because of construction work on Third Street between Washington and Vine. Chillicothe Street Superintendent Barry Arthur stated the street will likely remain closed for three more weeks as the contractor, M&M Utilities of Chillicothe continues work. To help alleviate traffic congestion, the contractor and city made arrangements so that the intersection of Elm and Third Streets would be completed and opened so that traffic may travel north and south on Elm. Motorists will also be able to travel north and south on Vine Street. After completing Third Street, the contractor will begin work on Park Lane and Morningside Drive.
