ODOT closures focus on Interstate, US and State routes.  For information on local roads you will need to contact the county, city or township where the road is located.  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.
