Cleveland Avenue Bridge Nearing Completion
COLUMBUS – (NEW) Tonight, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will shift northbound Cleveland Avenue traffic onto the new half of the bridge over Interstate 270.
The number of lanes will not change - two northbound lanes and one southbound lane on Cleveland Avenue.
Moving northbound traffic over to the other side of the road will allow crews to pave the southbound lanes on Cleveland Avenue. Once final paving is complete, all that will be left is striping then the roadway will be open.
The entrance ramp from Cleveland Ave to I-270 west will be closed tonight from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. in order to complete the traffic shift. The detour is Cleveland Avenue north, left on Schrock Road, left on Busch Boulevard, left on SR 161 to I-71 north to I-270 west.
All lanes of the new Cleveland Ave. bridge over I-270 are expected to open by the end of the week, weather permitting.
