“I mean, they’ve given ample warning, so drivers have been able to figure out if they need to take a detour or change their timing,” Marc Rasor said.

The detour will be Stutsman Road to South Alpha-Bellbrook Road to Upper Bellbrook Road to Feedwire Road to Little Sugarcreek Road.

“It’s all part of the progress. It’s new development. The city is growing. The township is growing. It’s all part of the need for housing, it’s understandable," Rasor said.
