ODOT Opens State Route 2 Ramps to State Route 306 and Lost Nation Road
Vine Street westbound entrance ramp to State Route 2 westbound to close Monday
Cleveland (Friday, December 11, 2009) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) today reopened the State Route 2 westbound ramps to both State Route 306 and Lost Nation Road as Phase II of the Lake 2 Corridor Modernization Plan moves forward.
In order to remain on schedule, crews will close the Vine Street westbound entrance ramp to State Route 2 westbound beginning Monday, December 14. This exit - along with the Vine Street eastbound entrance ramp to State Route 2 westbound - will remain closed through mid-spring 2010. Motorists may detour via State Route 91.
Crews will also close one lane of State Route 2 in each direction between Lost Nation Road and Newell Creek/State Route 306 from approximately 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Monday, December 14, in order to perform striping operations. Evening rush hour delays are expected.
On State Route 2, traffic in Stage One between Lost Nation Road and Newell Creek/State Route 306 has been shifted on to the new State Route 2 pavement. The Lost Nation Road northbound entrance ramp to State Route 2 westbound will remain closed through the winter months into late spring 2010. Motorists may detour via Lost Nation Road southbound to Erie Street southbound to Vine Street westbound.
Through the fall of 2010, Lost Nation Road traffic will be maintained with one lane in each direction between Wood Road and Riverside Commons and Reeves Road remains closed at Lost Nation Road. The detour is set utilizing Hurricane Drive.
Widening work in Stage Two between State Route 91 and Stevens Boulevard will take place during the 2010 construction season and widening in Stage Three between Stevens Boulevard and Lost Nation Road will take place during the 2011 construction season. *Please note: Work between Stevens Boulevard and Lost Nation Road was originally intended to be completed during the 2010 construction season, however due to delays in securing structural steel for the Lost Nation Road bridge, stages two and three have been reversed.
The entire three-stage project rehabilitates State Route 2 and adds a lane between State Route 91 and Newell Creek/State Route 306 and is expected to be completed in October 2011.
