There was no regular “Orange Cone Alert” this week as ODOT failed to post updates on road construction work for Ashland and Crawford Counties.

There was information shared about current work on the US30 project which has been a bit part of Richland County transportation over the last couple of years. That information is as follows:

U.S. Route 30 minor rehabilitation – U.S. 30, from the 5th Ave interchange ramps to just past the Ashland County Line, will have lane closures for pavement repairs. One lane of traffic with a minimum lane width of 12’ will be maintained in each direction at all times.

NEW IMPACTS

  • The U.S. 30 eastbound and westbound rest area entrances and exits will close for resurfacing work. The westbound rest area will close Tuesday, August 15, 2023 for a short-term closure, and is estimated to reopen the same day. The eastbound rest area will close Tuesday, August 22, 2023 for a short-term closure, and is estimated to reopen the same day.
  • The I-71 southbound exit ramp (Exit 176) to U.S. 30 west will close Tuesday, August 15 for one day for pavement repairs. The detour is to take the exit 176 east towards Wooster, turn right onto Crider Road towards Koogle Road, turn right on Koogle Road and use the entrance ramp to U.S. 30 west. Estimated ramp reopening: Tuesday, August 15, 2023

  • Short term daily closures will begin next week at the following locations:
    • U.S. 30 east to I-71 south ramp
    • U.S. 30 west to Reed Road entrance and exit ramps
    • U.S. 30 westbound rest area
