Interstate 280 Veterans’ Glass City Skyway
BOWLING GREEN (Thursday, November 05, 2015) - The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District Two announces that effective immediately, until further notice, southbound I-280, on the Veterans’ Glass City Skyway (VGCS) in Lucas County is reduced to two lanes for pavement repair due to an earlier commercial vehicle fire.
ODOT bridge engineers have assessed the area and determined that although no major structural damage occurred, repairs including pavement grinding and concrete patching, as well as repairs to portions of the steel barrier, will be necessary. At this time, ODOT estimates these repairs could take up to one week. ODOT will announce if the lane closure is extended due to material issues. Based upon the volume of traffic, ODOT does not expect delays on the VGCS, during the lane closure. All work is weather permitting.
