Lane Closures and Traffic Pattern Switch on I-70 Westbound
Between Number Nine Road and Arlington Road
Montgomery County (Thursday, August 14, 2014) – A single lane closure will be in effect on I-70 westbound between Number Nine Road and Arlington Road beginning Thursday, August 14th at 6 pm. The affected lane is scheduled to reopen Friday, August 15th at 2 pm. One lane will remain open to westbound motorists at all times.
 
These lane closures are due to a contractor resurfacing the pavement in that area.
 
Traffic will also be switched back into its normal configuration on I-70 westbound.
 
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.
