 State Route 57 Corridor Improvement



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

SR 57 between Ohio Turnpike & Interstate 90 - Intermittent lane closures through Friday, November 20 as crews place pavement markings and other traffic control items in time for winter. Motorists should expect short duration delays through this area.
Midway Blvd. west of SR 57 – One lane in each direction shifted to the south side of the roadway near the Leona St. intersection.  Contractor will be completing concrete pavement work in this area, and the roadway is expected to reopen late Friday, November 20, 2015.
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.
