A temporary road closure on Old SR 74 has been scheduled to support ongoing improvement work throughout the area.
Old SR 74 will be closed between Glen Este-Withamsville Road and English Creek Drive from Monday, Sept. 30, 2019, through Friday, Dec. 13, 2019.
The intersection of Old SR 74 and Glen Este-Withamsville Road will remain open during the closure period and local access to the Glen Este Church of Christ will be maintained.
A detour using Eastgate Boulevard, Eastgate North Drive and Glen Este-Withamsville Road will be put into place and marked with signage.
The closure will extend approximately 1,000 feet and is needed to install stormsewer and water infrastructure, build retaining walls and widen the roadway.
The Old SR 74 widening project is part of the comprehensive program of projects to improve safety and connectivity along the SR 32 Corridor. Specifically, these improvements will provide better traffic flow north of SR 32, and along with the improvements being made on Clepper Lane, will help alleviate significant traffic pressure along SR 32 by providing drivers with an alternate east-west travel route.
Work continues on the Old SR 74 widening project.
