Route 42 ***UPDATE***
US 42, from just south of
Harding Street to just south of Reagan Parkway, will have intermittent
lane closures as crews continue work.
Nightly paving on US 42, between Reagan Parkway and Highland/Harding, will
begin Monday night until Wednesday morning. Daytime work will consist of
prepping and construction the bike path and driveways. US 42 southbound,
between Highland Rd. and Homestead St., will close Wednesday, August 1 for
roadway widening and reconstruction work. This closure is a part of the US 42
Widening Project. Only northbound traffic on US 42 will be allowed to travel
through this area. The detour route for southbound motorists is US 42 to SR
303, east on SR 303 to I-71, south on I-71 to SR 3, and south on SR 3 to US 42.
The road is expected to reopen Tuesday, August 21, 2018. Message boards and signs are in place notifying motorists of the
traffic pattern change. Businesses can be accessed by utilizing the traffic
lights and alleyways. Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling
through the work zone and to be aware of construction vehicles entering and
exiting the zone. The entire project is
expected to be complete November 2018; however, all work is weather dependent
and is subject to change.
