HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ODOT
We have a lot to be thankful for. ODOT truly appreciates your patience & cooperation as we wind down our 2015 construction season. As we look back on our record-breaking $2.4 billion program, ODOT advanced:
· 284 bridge & culvert projects totaling $389 million
· 273 pavement projects totaling $518 million
· 201 safety projects totaling $240 million
· 38 major projects totaling more than $1 billion
· 109 county bridge replacements through Gov. Kasich’s Bridge Partnership Program
These projects represent the department’s continued focus on safety, improving the economy and enhancing the overall quality of life for Ohioans. And we also want to thank you for doing your part to keep highway workers and emergency responders safe while they work on the side of the road. Remember, when you see flashing lights, Slow Down, Move Over.
Here’s what’s happening as part of the Cleveland Opportunity Corridor project:
NEW!! Beginning Monday, January 4 for approximately three days, westbound traffic on Chester Avenue at East 105th Street will be reduced to one lane from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The following Thursday January 7, the operation will switch to the eastbound lanes which will be reduced to one lane from 6:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., for approximately three days. Each day (January 4-9) as crews work on Chester, southbound traffic on East 105th Street near Chester Avenue will also be reduced to one lane.
Through late-January, East 105th Street is closed in both directions between Cedar Avenue and Quebec. Motorists are detoured via East 100th Street. Frank, Arthur, Hudson and Norman Avenues do not have direct access to East 105th Street during the closure. These streets have temporarily been made two-way streets to provide full access. Detour map here.
Through late-January, East 105th Street is closed to southbound traffic between Carnegie and Cedar Avenues. Southbound motorists are detoured via East 100th Street. Detour map here.
What’s next for Opportunity Corridor?? This winter, upon reopening of East 105th Street to all traffic, those in the vicinity should be alert for occasional off-peak lane closures as crews perform utility work including waterline work, signal work and lighting work throughout the entire project area between Quincy and University Circle. This will continue through the spring.
