Broadway Avenue entrance ramp to I-77 south Closure Postponed until early-Summer
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has good news for motorists that frequently use the Broadway Avenue ramp to I-77 south. The originally scheduled ramp closure has been postponed until early-summer following design changes related to utility relocation work necessary to construct the new frontage road.
The project is being constructed using the Design-Build method, which combines the design and construction of a project in one competitively-bid contract. This allows for design and construction to be completed simultaneously and reduces the likelihood of the project being delayed as construction work is on-going.
This project also includes the reconstruction of the Broadway Avenue bridge over I-77, which is expected to take place mid-2018. Those details will be forthcoming.
Contractor: Kokosing Construction Company Inc.
Bid Amount: $28,934,600
