New construction will begin on State Route 664 next month near Hocking Hills.
The project is aimed to reroute the road, for increased pedestrian safety, according to a press release form the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
The route is being moved north, so that visitors now won't have to cross the busy roadway currently located between the parking lot and walking trails.
Construction is expected to finish around October 2012, and the park will remain open throughout.
