I-271 northbound Express Lanes Close for ResurfacingNorthbound Express Lanes to close at 7 p.m. tonight
Garfield Heights (Wednesday, May 12, 2010) – Beginning at 7 p.m. tonight, crews will close the I-271 northbound Express Lanes between Emery Road and U.S. 322 (Mayfield Road) in order to perform paving operations.
The I-271 northbound Express Lanes will remain closed until 6 a.m. Monday, May 17 – weather permitting – as paving operations take place.
ODOT engineers and inspectors today made the decision to close the I-271 northbound Express Lanes in order to eliminate the safety hazard of loose asphalt and road debris. This week’s excessive rain fall has aggravated the exposed surface causing pavement to crumble under heavy traffic.
The southbound Express Lanes and all Local Lanes will remain open.
Project: Resurfacing the I-271 Express Lanes from Emery Road to U.S. 322 (Mayfield Road) in the cities of Warrensville Heights, Pepper Pike, Beachwood and Mayfield Heights and the Villages of Orange and Woodmere.
