Upcoming Project Information - Construction Notice
ODOT Project FRA-270-9.62; PID 76469
270 Widening from Trabue Road to US 33 in Franklin County
July 16, 2015 - The Ohio Department of Transportation is providing advance notification of major highway project planned within the next several years. Currently there is a project scheduled to begin in three years that will impact travel on Interstate 270 on the northwest side. The ODOT project will widen Interstate 270 from three lanes to four between Trabue Road in Norwich Township to US 33 in Washington Township.
Construction will add a lane in each direction on 270 which means drivers will have four lanes instead of three travel lanes between Hilliard and Dublin. The widening project will be completed within the existing highway median so there are no plans to acquire land for the project. The proposed project will not reconfigure entrance and exit ramps. Construction is set to begin July 2018 and be complete October 2019.
Maintenance of traffic during construction will be accomplished through part-width construction. While plans on how to maintain traffic have not been finalized, the preliminary plan is to have at least three travel lanes open in each direction during construction. Closures and restrictions will be permitted at night and weekends when traffic volumes are lighter with prior notification.
Prior to construction, advanced notification will be provided to inform roadway users about the traffic impacts due to construction.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during our efforts to improve I-270.
