Mohican-Memorial State Forest and Mohican State Park are popular for visitors, and the road repairs will provide improved access to the gorge overlook, fire tower, covered bridge, campgrounds and recreation trails.

Scheduled to begin the week of March 14, improvement work and closures will occur on the section of ODNR Road 58 from State Route 97 down to the covered bridge. Intermittent closures on this stretch will occur during the week of March 14.
