The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has started work on a full movement interchange at I-71 & Western Row Road.
In order to accommodate the initial phase of work, work crews will make some changes to the traffic pattern in this area.
Weather permitting, there will be various lane closures in place on north and southbound I-71 between Kings Mills and Western Row, beginning tonight at 8 p.m., until 7 a.m., tomorrow morning. At no point during this work will the full interstate be closed.
Once complete, north and southbound traffic will be shifted to the left (inside) by one lane, using the left shoulder as the high-speed lane. This pattern will be maintained for approximately one year, allowing crews to work on the outside.
Arrow boards &/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming work zone, lane closures and traffic shift.
To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
