U.S. 422 Eastbound Exit Ramp to SR 44 to Close for 30 days
Work to resurface U.S. 422 east and westbound is underway
GARFIELD HEIGHTS (Tuesday, August 19, 2014) – On Monday, August 25, crews working on the U.S. 422 minor rehabilitation project will close the U.S. 422 eastbound exit ramp to SR 44 for 30 days. The closure is necessary as crews will be rebuilding this exit ramp as part of the project.
During the closure, motorists will detour via U.S. 422 eastbound to SR 700 south to SR 82 west to SR 44.
Currently all lanes of traffic are shifted on to U.S. 422 westbound. One lane of traffic is maintained in each direction utilizing a "contraflow" traffic pattern. Portable concrete barriers are being used to separate east and westbound traffic while one lane of U.S. 422 eastbound is shifted onto the westbound side of the highway. This configuration allows the contractor to have full access to a safe work zone during all phases of construction.
The entire project rehabilitates U.S. 422 between SR 306 and SR 44, including replacing the SR 44 entrance ramp to U.S. 422 westbound that took place this spring and replacing the U.S. 422 eastbound exit ramp to SR 44, in Bainbridge and Auburn townships.
