A timeout has been called in the race between two local developers vying to build a new Interstate 71 interchange in Delaware County.
In separate letters sent to the competing developers, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) announced that it would not be partnering with either developer by releasing a request for proposal (RFP) at this time, as the developers had hoped.
“Based on the ODOT and Delaware County evaluations of the (request for information) responses, the level of risk associated with revenue sources, revenue projections, financing, scheduling, and technical issues is too high to warrant further advancement as a (public-private partnership) project at this stage of project development,” the letter reads.
If the average person would put on a firefighter’s turnout gear, complete with Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus, helmet and face mask he or she would find it difficult to take a dozen steps, let alone a dozen steps up stairs.

Climb For A Cure is a 40-floor stair climb at the Rhodes Tower done in full turn out gear while breathing air from an SCBA.
They last for only a few minutes. They’re over in a virtual heartbeat, but children line up at Easter Egg Hunts everywhere in anticipation of that several minute thrill ride across lawns peppered with brightly colored Easter eggs filled with sweet treats.
And, if it’s the Saturday, March 23, Fraternal Order of Eagles Easter Egg Hunt on Sunbury Village Square, children stick around after the lawn has been swept clean of Easter eggs to see if they are lucky winners of a bicycle, this year with a little help from Meijer.
But to win a bike, participants must sign up immediately before the Easter Egg Hunt. Bicycle sign up is from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and the hunt begins promptly at 12 noon.

Big Walnut area folks who enjoy Jet’s Pizza are familiar with the Westerville store in a Giant Eagle Plaza out-lot on North State Street. That’s where many of them stop on the way home from work to pick up their favorite Jet’s pizza, sub or salad.
But driving out of the way or stopping in Westerville and arriving home with a cold pizza is a thing of the past, because on Friday, February 22, Jet’s Pizza opened its 11th central Ohio store in Sunbury Mills Plaza.
