Work on intersections around the SR 57 corridor has impacts to traffic. ODOT's contractor for this project plans to work in several areas throughout the 2014 construction season.
State Route 57: Two lanes remain in each direction between the Midway Mall Boulevard
and the Ohio Turnpike. The contractor is working in the median during this
phase of reconstruction, and traffic will remain in this pattern through the fall.
Interstate 90: Entrance ramp to I-90 westbound is reduced to one lane
of traffic, along with the left-turn movement from SR 57 north to the ramp. The
contractor will continue to remove pavement and perform pavement excavation
work at this ramp to I-90 west. Excavation and drainage work also continues on
the new section of the I-90 eastbound exit ramp to SR 57.
Leona Street/Midway Boulevard: Work to reconstruct the southern half of this
intersection has begun. There is no access from Leona Street south of Midway
Blvd. Traffic is encouraged to use Midway Blvd, 50th Street and
Leona Street north of Midway Blvd as an alternate routes around the
Midway Boulevard/Tillotson Street: Tillotson Street is closed between 49th
Street and Midway Blvd for reconstruction work. Traffic is encouraged to use
Tillotson Street north to Griswold Road, east on Griswold Road to West River
Road as an alternate route to Midway Blvd. Midway Blvd traffic is maintained
through the intersection.
Midway Mall Frontage Road: On Monday, July 28, work will begin on the road
between Tillotson Street and Red Lobster restaurant. The entrance to the Midway
Mall will be closed at Tillotson Street.

reconstruction of the southern half of Griswold Road has been postponed until
mid-August, upon completion of the utility relocation.
