MORROW COUNTY — A curve on Ohio 229, that has been the site of numerous crashes, is to be reconfigured. The section is in Knox County just east of the Morrow County line between Braddock and Campbell roads.

The contractor will start work Tuesday when they will lower the roadway at the curve.

They will rebuild it with some banking so cars can arch the curve easier.

The work is expected to be completed by Nov. 15.
