Joshua Morrison/News The warning barricades for the Sandusky Street/High Street intersection project, including this one at the intersection of Mulberry and High, are up reminding motorists they will not be able to go through the construction zone. Motorists are able to reach the businesses on the streets before reaching the intersection. The warnings are at the intersections of Mulberry and High streets, Norton and High, Chestnut and Sandusky, Sandusky and Gambier, and around the intersection itself. Jason Epley, assistant to the engineer, said there was some confusion Monday morning, but the barricade positions have been adjusted and signs will be added to make it clear the access is still available.
