COLUMBUS, Ohio – Just in time for the holiday travel period, motorists on the West Side are getting a small measure of relief from major construction that has narrowed lanes and closed entrance and exit ramps on I-270.
The Ohio Department of Transportation says it will reopen the ramps from I-270 North to I-70 West and I-70 East to I-270 North Monday night.
The West Side ramps have been closed since June 4 for reconstruction.
Tuesday morning commuters will enjoy new pavement on the two loop ramps at the I-270/70 interchange.
The closures were part of a continuing $80 million project to rebuild seven miles of the Outerbelt between US 62 and Roberts Road on the Southwest Side, which began in September 2011 and is expected to be complete by fall of 2014.
