Ohio Department of Transportation Traffic Advisory

 

Relief for North Side Drivers Beginning Tomorrow

 

Weather permitting, your Monday morning commute should be a little smoother on US 23, and there will be more turn lanes on E. Campus View Boulevard.

 

Overnight tonight, US 23 southbound traffic will be switched on to new pavement. By Monday morning, drivers will be travelling on two new lanes of US 23 southbound between Northwoods and Campus View Boulevard.

 

Also new for drivers, the left turn lane from US 23 south to Flint Road will reopen. On E. Campus View Boulevard, there will be four lanes open – three designated left turn lanes and one lane for through traffic or right turns.

 

To put all of this in place, US 23 south will be reduced to one lane between Northwoods Boulevard and Flint Road from 8 p.m. tonight until 5 a.m. Monday.

 

Once US 23 southbound traffic is shifted, crews can work on the additional southbound lane. The new southbound lane will be complete next year.
