 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​. ​​​

 

“The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.”
