State Route 8 (Northfield Road) resurfacing project to begin July 25
Two-way traffic maintained on State Route 8; three I-480 ramps to close
GARFIELD HEIGHTS (Wednesday, July 13, 2016) – On July 25, crews in coordination of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the cities of Bedford Heights and Maple Heights will begin resurfacing operations on a segment of State Route 8 (Northfield Road) between Raymond Street and Miles Road. Effected municipalities include Bedford Heights, Maple Heights, North Randall, and Warrensville Heights.
Mayor Fletcher Berger of Bedford Heights said, “We are thrilled that the much needed repair work on Northfield Road is going to begin. Without ODOT, this project would not be going forward. This is a multi-city project between the cities of Bedford Heights and Maple Heights. ODOT is putting forth the funding that has enabled this project.”
Two lanes southbound and one lane northbound of through traffic will remain open on Northfield Road while the project is underway. However, the entrance ramps from Northfield Road to I-480 westbound and Mueti Drive to I-480 eastbound, as well as the exit ramp from I-480 eastbound to Northfield Road will be closed to traffic effective July 25. The ramps will remain closed through late October.
Detours are as followed:
To detour around the Northfield Road entrance ramp to I-480 westbound, motorists should continue on Northfield Road northbound and turn left onto State Route 43 (Miles Road), go south onto Warrensville Center Road and enter onto I-480 westbound. (Click on map A for a full-size image.)
