Lane Closures on US 127 and SR 29 in Both Directions
Between US 36 and SR 185, and Celina and the Auglaize County line
 
Darke/Mercer County (Tuesday, May 7, 2013) – Lane closures will be in effect on US 127 in both directions between US 36 and SR 185 beginning Tuesday, May 7th at 7 am.  SR 29 in Mercer County will also have one lane closed in each direction between Celina and the Auglaize County line during this time.  These lane closures will take place daily during daylight hours. The affected lanes are scheduled to reopen to motorists October 15th.  One lane of traffic will remain open to motorists in each direction at all times.
 
These lane closures are due to a contractor installing guide signs in that area.
 
Arrow boards and signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming closure.  All work is weather permitting.
 
Safety is a top priority at ODOT.  To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
 
Ohio’s highways are essential to keeping and creating new jobs.  With a mission to provide easy movement of people and goods from place to place, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is responsible for maintaining one of the largest transportation networks in the nation.  Guided by ethical principles and accountability, ODOT works to improve safety, enhance travel and advance economic development.  As a $2.8 billion enterprise, the department wisely invests in its core services of snow and ice removal, annual construction program and highway maintenance operations.
