I-75/I-74 Construction Updates
Pedestrian Bridge Over Central Parkway Removed To Lot G
I-75 / I-74 Update
Unless you live within walking distance to campus, the only way to avoid construction-related traffic issues of some sort, it might appear, is to hire a plane and parachute in. Well, OK, that’s a tad extreme, and premature to boot. The construction crews are just getting warmed up, after all.
But now, having presumably gained your attention, gentle reader, we bring you this week’s Interstate 75/Hopple Street interchange lane and/or ramp closure updates from the Ohio Department of Transportation. Read carefully, because it is getting serious:
- Two left lanes of southbound I-75 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, March 17, Tuesday, March 18, Thursday, March 20, and Friday, March 21, will enjoy multiple 30-minute full closures of south and northbound I-75 between 12:01 and 5 a.m. each night. Also, the ramp from northbound I-75 to Hopple Street will be closed each night between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
- The right lane of southbound I-75 will be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Wednesday, March 19, and there will be multiple short-term rolling closures from midnight to 5 a.m. Thursday, March 20.
- The right lane of northbound Central Parkway will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. A lane closure on Central Parkway between Hopple Street and Bates Avenue for equipment relocation is planned at 5 a.m. Wednesday, March 19.
- Various closures of Marshall Avenue will occur between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily using flagging operations.
- Various side street flagging operations for equipment moves, material deliveries and bridge work are planned from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
Local law enforcement will maintain traffic. Arrow boards and signs are in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming lane and ramp closures. To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
