Special to 1812Blockhouse

The Ohio Department of Transportation has issued a project-specific update on the status of the work being undertaken on US Route 30. According to ODOT:

U.S. 30, from State Route 309 to just east of the 5th Avenue ramps, will have single lane closures for a major rehabilitation project. Traffic will always be maintained.

NEW IMPACTS

U.S. 30 eastbound, at the structure over Bowman Street, will close Friday, July 2 at 3:00 a.m. for approximately two hours. Crews will be completing pavement repair work. The detour route for motorists traveling on U.S. 30 eastbound will be to take the SR 39 exit to SR 39 south to Longview Avenue west to SR 13/U.S. 30 eastbound entrance ramps. Estimated reopening of U.S. 30 eastbound: Friday, July 2, 2021 at 5:00 a.m.

CONTINUING IMPACTS

  • U.S. 30 eastbound – One lane of eastbound traffic will be maintained from just west of SR 309 to SR 13, and two lanes of traffic eastbound from SR 13 to just east of 5th Avenue.
  • U.S. 30 westbound – One lane of westbound traffic will be maintained from just east of 5th Avenue to SR 13, and two lanes of traffic westbound from SR 13 to just west of Trimble Road.
  • U.S. 30 westbound access to exits at 5th Avenue, SR 13, Trimble Road, and SR 309 are currently being maintained. Access from U.S. 30 westbound to SR 545 and SR 39 will not be permitted (ramps closed).

    • Closure of the U.S. 30 westbound exit and entrance ramps to SR 545.
    • Closure of the U.S. 30 westbound exit and entrance ramps to SR 39. The detour route will be U.S. 30 westbound to the Trimble Road exit, south on Trimble Road to U.S. 30 eastbound, and U.S. 30 eastbound to the SR 39 exit.

  • Lane widths will be 11’ throughout the length of the project.
  • All eastbound exits will be maintained throughout the season, except for the SR 545 exit which has been permanently removed per project plans.
