 State Route 57 Corridor Improvement

 

Logo-2.jpg

The improvement of the SR 57 corridor between the Ohio Turnpike and Interstate 90 in the City of Elyria is a long awaited project to improve safety and reduce congestion in this heavily commercial area. Funding for the construction of this project was made possible by the implementation of Ohio’s Jobs and Transportation Plan, an initiative of Governor John Kasich. This plan, made possible by the sale of bonds of the Ohio Turnpike, allows for $1.5 billion to be invested in infrastructure projects across northern Ohio.

Part of the purpose of this project is to improve access to this area in order to promote economic growth.  However, there will be many phases to this project that will include the necessity to restrict lanes and close roadways in order to complete this improvement project by July 2016​. ​​​

 Current Traffic Impacts

 
Griswold Road (east of SR 57): One lane closures are necessary during the week of December 15 for clean up work.
Additional work around the Midway Mall Frontage Road will be ongoing throughout the week for miscellaneous clean up.

Exercise caution in work zones and pay attention to slower moving traffic as it merges in to an open lane. For statewide construction information visit Ohgo.com. ​

 Future Construction Forecast

 
In 2015, work will include the reconstruction of Midway Blvd; reconstruction of the remaining portions of SR 57; construction of new at-grade intersections of Midway Blvd and Griswold Road at SR 57; reconstruction of the Ohio Turnpike entrance ramp from SR 57 south as well as the exit ramp to SR 57 north.

In 2016, the contractor plans to perform final traffic signal analysis and clean up of the project.
