Over the past few weeks, the Centerburg Village Council has given its approval for the annexation of 113.457 acres of land located south of the village on Columbus Road. This land is owned by different individuals and businesses, one namely being Knox Community Hospital.
Since the opening of the Centerburg Health and Wellness Facility in January, traffic has increased on that section of U.S. state route 36.
Reportedly, the village council suggested to start looking at future traffic control measures in the area entering Centerburg, near Twist 'N Shake as a potential for the increase of traffic to continue.
With the annexation, the village corporation line now extends to where the Heart of Ohio Trail pedestrian bridge crosses Columbus Road, and the village is considering adding a pedestrian crosswalk at Hometown Market and Dollar General, as recommended by the Knox County Active Transportation Plan.
Reportedly, Mayor Greg Sands and Councilman Dave Beck discussed the need for law enforcement to stop traffic during school hours to reduce the time it takes buses to turn from Preston Street onto West Main.
