HOLIDAY WEEKEND TRAFFIC UPDATE

COLUMBUS The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is taking extra steps to make this weekends holiday travel as safe and efficient as possible. This is the first major travel weekend of the summer and ODOT expects to see increased traffic volumes over the weekend.

 To keep traffic moving through the states construction zones during peak travel times, ODOT works to open additional lanes of traffic and requires contractors to maintain at least two lanes of traffic in each direction where possible on the interstates. But some closures are unavoidable and motorists should always use caution when traveling through construction zones, even when it appears there is no work occurring. With construction season in full swing, many zones have narrowed lanes, traffic shifts, unexpected conditions or could cause congestion.

Knowing where closures and construction zones are ahead of time can reduce frustration and delays for travelers. Motorists can get up-to-date construction, road condition and travel information at any time at www.buckeyetraffic.org. Here is a comprehensive list of the major projects that will impact the largest number of travelers this weekend.
