The Ohio Department of Transportation and city employees hosted a public forum Wednesday that included a project timeline for the west-end overpass.

Now, with a better understanding of the process, the families and business owners in the area to be displaced by the overpass have a decision to make -- is waiting a detriment to their lives? If waiting is a detriment, Jim Short, a real estate administrator for ODOT, said he could get the moving process started sooner than spring 2008.

All three homeowners have agreed to sell. They agreed the overpass is needed for traffic and safety issues.
