Scioto Division/Columbus District line relocation?

Usually, when a line is relocated, it results in "long"
miles (more than 5,280 ft.)or "short" miles (less than
5.280 ft.). Although there is only one perfect mile
in that area (MP 691-692), there is no great deviation
in the mileage Ashville to Valley Crossing. Because
the Lockbourne lead trailed from the westbound
track, maybe it refers to its construction.

If I remember correctly, Louis Newton told me there
was a sizeable grade separation project that took
place closer to Columbus in the 1930's.
