Grove City Traffic Updates
Ohio Department of Transportation I-71 Widening Project Daily Updates
Friday, Feb. 16 | Traffic Advisory Update
I-71 southbound travel lanes will be restricted for the afternoon drive to make additional pothole repairs. New asphalt has just been placed on the the right lane of I-71 south between I-270 and Stringtown Road. Once that work is complete, work will begin on the far left lane of I-71 southbound.
5 p.m. Exit ramps open from I-71 southbound to Stringtown Road and I-270 eastbound to I-71 southbound.
Once complete, the far left lane of I-71 southbound closes between 270 & Stringtown Road as well as the ramp from I-270 eastbound to I-71 southbound.
9 p.m. All lanes and ramps open.
Crews are currently inspecting the entire I-71 south side construction zone between Greenlawn Avenue and Stringtown Road to determine additional pavement repairs needed on Interstate 71 in our area.
Drivers are encouraged to use extra care when traveling through construction areas. All construction is weather dependent.
Please note: during the South Side “Mega Fix” there will be overnight work during the project. An updated advisory will be released daily.

The Ohio Department of Transportation South Side “Mega Fix” may affect your travel on Interstate 71 between Columbus and Grove City or beyond.
Lane and ramp closures are permitted during off-peak times, the specific timeframe depends on the number of lanes closed and traffic volumes on the ramp or on that section of roadway. Daytime lane and ramp closures are permitted in some locations between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., depending on traffic volumes. All lanes and ramps will be open by 5 a.m. on weekdays. Every effort will be made to provide prior notification of lane closures on I-71. Review the closure chart for additional information.
Additional materials about the South Side “Mega Fix” are on the Ohio Department of Transportation District 6 website including a project fact sheet, a graphic showing the final configuration of I-270 and I-71 south and how ODOT will keep you moving during construction.
Another way to stay up-to-date is to download the OHGO app for real-time traffic speeds, live cameras, personalized notifications and more.
The five-mile ODOT construction project will build extra lanes, new bridges and exit ramps. The $113 million project will be under construction for three years with completion planned for the Fall of 2020.
Drivers are encouraged to use extra care when traveling through all construction areas. All construction is weather dependent.
