Hudson Street Bridge Over I-71 to Close August 10
COLUMBUS – (NEW) After the Ohio State Fair closes its gates and Urban Meyer’s butter statue has begun to thaw, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will close the Hudson Street bridge over Interstate 71.
Starting at 7 a.m. on Monday, August 10, Hudson Street will close for two and a half months to replace the bridge. All ramps will remain open, but drivers will not be able to travel across the bridge.
The detour for westbound traffic is I-71 north to Weber Road to I-71 south to Hudson Street. The detour for eastbound traffic is I-71 south to 17th Avenue to I-71 north to Hudson Street.
For pedestrian traffic, the detour during construction is Hiawatha Street.
Weather permitting, Hudson Street is expected to reopen October 22.
