For Immediate Release
Downtown & Interstate traffic info
Interstate 670 (Downtown) – The ramp from Jack Gibbs Boulevard to I-670 west will be closed until November 2012 to begin construction of the crossovers which will allow traffic to be rerouted on I-670 east. Crossing over traffic allows crews to begin work sooner on new bridges and add a lane for I-670 east traffic. There will be two detours: Either Cleveland Avenue to Mount Vernon Avenue to 4th Street to I-670 or Cleveland Avenue to 5th Avenue to I-670.
Interstate 71 (Downtown) – The ramp from Long Street to I-71 north will be closed until November 2012 for the Columbus Crossroads project. The detour is 17th Street to Broad Street to 4th Street to I-670.
Interstate 71 (Downtown) – The ramp from I-71 south to Spring Street will be closed until November 2012 for the Columbus Crossroads Project. The detour is I-71 to Broad Street to Cleveland Avenue. A temporary ramp to Spring Street from I-71 south will open next month.
Interstate 670 (Downtown) – The ramp from I-670 east to Broad Street will be closed for the Columbus Crossroads Project. The detour is Cleveland Avenue or 3rd Street to Broad Street.
Interstate 71/670 (Downtown) – The ramps from Broad Street to I-71 north and I-670 west will be closed until 2013 to ensure there are two thru lanes of traffic during construction and adequate room for the contractor to work. Once the first project is complete, there will be three lanes of traffic in both directions on 71. The detour will be Broad Street to 4th Street to I-670 to I-71.
Scioto Greenway Trail (Downtown) – The Scioto Greenway Trail is closed between Grandview Avenue and Dublin Road so crews can construct a new bikepath to connect the existing paths. Completion: October 2013.
