 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

 
 
All work on this project that will impact traffic has ceased for the winter season.
Crews will continue to work on areas around the project that will not impact traffic, such as removing the embankment at the old 49th Street bridge.
Motorists traveling Interstate 90 exiting to State Route 57, please note that there is only one exit now. If you want to travel north or south on SR 57 from I-90, you will need to exit on SR 57 then choose to head toward your destination.  
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.
