If you dislike road work, it might be a good week to stay relatively close to home. Instead of the large number of projects impacting roadways in the counties of ODOT District Three – Media County alone has ten ongoing projects – the next week in Richland County will largely be devoid of work that could impact your commute or travel.
The three local projects this week include:
State Route 61
SR 61, from just west of London West Rd to east of Opdyke Rd, is reduced to one lane of traffic as part of a micro seal project. One lane of traffic will be maintained with flaggers. The project is expected to be complete in October 2016.
State Routes 96 & 603
SR 96, from SR 13 to the Ashland County Line, and SR 603, from SR 96 to SR 61, will have intermittent daytime lane closures for a resurfacing project. Traffic will be maintained with flaggers as needed. The project is expected to be complete October 31, 2016.
State Route 97 ***UPDATE***
SR 97, at its interchange with Interstate 71, has narrowed lanes of traffic for a minor widening project. During this phase of the project, two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction and restricted to 10 feet lane widths. One lane of traffic will be maintained with flaggers. The project is expected to be complete by the end of November 2016.
