Overnight Sunday, August 23, the right lane will close as well as the ramp from West 25th Street/Pearl Road to I-71 north. Motorists should use I-71 south to Fulton Road where access to I-71 north is maintained. This will remain until about September 5 as crews repair the I-71 north bridge over SR 176. Additional closures are anticipated. More here.
