U.S.​ 422 Minor Pavement Rehabilitation to begin Thursday, March 20

Single lane closures on U.S. 422 Eastbound and Westbound


GARFIELD HEIGHTS (Wednesday, March 19, 2014)Crews on behalf of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), will close one lane on U.S. 422 east and westbound between SR 306 and SR 44 for approximately 30 days beginning Thursday, March 20 to implement phase one traffic configuration to prepare for minor pavement rehabilitation on U.S. 422.

Upon completion, crews will shift all lanes of traffic on U.S. 422 eastbound for approximately four months. One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction utilizing a "Contraflow" traffic pattern.  Portable concrete barriers will be used to separate east and westbound traffic while one lane is shifted onto the opposite 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 U.S. 422 eastbound exit and westbound entrance ramps to SR 44, in Bainbridge and Auburn townships.  The SR 44 entrance ramp to U.S. 422 westbound will be closed for a maximum of 30 days during the 2014 construction season.  Motorists will detour via SR 44 northbound to SR 87 westbound to SR 306 southbound to U.S. 422 westbound.  Details on timing will be forthcoming.   The entire project is expected to be complete in July, 2016.
