AKRON -- For one month crews closed the eastbound lanes of I-277/US 224 between I-77 and I-76 (the Kenmore Leg) for pavement repairs and resurfacing.
Now it's time for the westbound side to take its turn, which will result in fresh detours and restrictions.
Beginning Monday, June 18, I-277/US 224 West between I-77 and I-76 (Kenmore Leg) will be closed for four weeks for pavement repairs and resurfacing.
The detour will be I-77 North to I-76 West/I-77 North to I-76 West (Kenmore Leg).
The following ramp closures are also in place with the I-277/US 224 westbound closure:
I-77 North to I-277/US 224 West. The detour is I-77 North to I-76 West/I-77 North to I-76 West (Kenmore Leg).
I-77 South to I-277/US 224 West. The detour is I-76 West/I-77 North to I-76 West (Kenmore Leg).
Also, US 224 West from Kelly Avenue to the I-77 interchange will be reduced to one lane for bridge repairs.
The closure of I-76 West (Kenmore Leg), which was supposed to happen for a week starting June 1, has been postponed until "sometime in August," according to ODOT.
This work is part of a $13.2 million project to resurface I-277, I-76 and US 224 from the Kenmore Leg to I-77 and continuing on US 224 to just east of Kelly Avenue. The entire project, which also includes bridge work to 18 structures, is slated for completion in late October 2013.
