AKRON -- The Kenmore Leg, an area that has recently seen multiple different closures for construction, is about to be hit with a new detour.
Starting at 1 a.m. Monday, Aug. 6, crews will be closing I-76 West (Kenmore Leg) between I-77 and I-277/US 224 for bridge and pavement repairs.
The stretch of interstate is expected to remain closed through Monday, Aug. 13.
ODOT says the following ramp closures will also be in place:
- East Ave. exit ramp from I-76 West/ I-77 North. The detour is I-77 North to SR 261 (V. Odom Blvd.) to Frederick Blvd. to SR 261 (V. Odom Blvd) to East Ave.
- I-77 North to I-76 West (Kenmore Leg). The detour is I-77 North to SR 21 South. Traffic coming from the Central Interchange or downtown Akron can use I-77 South to I-277/US 224 West.
- I-77 South to I-76 West (Kenmore Leg). The detour is I-77 South to I-277/US 224 West.
This work is all 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.
