Motorists should look out for new traffic patterns as the I-76 Main Broadway Project continues in Akron.

The Ohio Department of Transportation is currently about halfway through the $84 million project. By the July of 2020 completion date, motorists should expect the permanent closure of the Grant Street and Wolf Ledges entrance and exit ramps to the highway.

Akron Interchange Shut Downs Are Delayed

The Ohio Department of Transportation temporarily backed away Wednesday from closing three main ramps of the central interchange of interstate highways and Route 8 in Akron. 

The problem was signs -- or, rather, the lack of them. The multi-year project, for which the ramp work is an early step, will eventually cost a half a billion dollars and affect much of Summit County.

But, ODOT found that contractors didn’t have all of the required warning and detour signs in place in time for the shutdown last night.

Justin Chesnic is a spokesman for the department.
