Traffic will be maintained at all times with a temporary traffic signal. The project is expected to be complete in early December, 2012

HURON COUNTY
State Route 13
SR-13, at both the north and south approaches of its intersection with US Route 224 in Greenwich Township, is closed as part of a bridge replacement and intersection improvement project. The detour route for southbound motorists is SR-13 to US Route 250, south east on US 250 to US 224, west on US 224 to State Route 61, south on SR-61 to State Route 603, south east on SR-603 to SR-13, and reverse. The road is expected to reopen in
mid-December, 2012.

LORAIN COUNTY
Interstate 90
I-90, at its twin bridge structures over the Black River and Ford Road, is reduced to two narrowed 11’ lane widths of traffic in each direction for bridge deck replacements. The restrictions will remain in place through November 2013. 

Interstate 90
I-90, at its Nagel Road overpass (between State Route 83 and Crocker Road), has narrowed lane widths for work as part of the new interchange construction project. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained at all times during the daytime hours. The project is expected to be complete by September 2013.

Interstate 76 - ***UPDATE***
Traffic on I-76 eastbound (between State Route 94 and the Summit County line) will shift back to normal patterns beginning Sunday, November 18; however, intermittent single lane closures may be necessary for barrier wall removal on Monday, November 19.  Motorists are advised to use caution in this area and watch for slower moving traffic as it merges in to the open lane. As the project wraps up work prior to the winter season, the completion date remains as September 2013.
