Ohio Department of Transportation I-71 Widening Project  |  Stringtown Road to Frank Road

The Ohio Department of Transportation South Side “Mega Fix” may affect your travel on Interstate 71 between Columbus and Grove City or beyond. The next phase of the project is officially underway.

Drivers on the south side can expect nightly lane and ramp closures during October in order to get traffic on Interstate 71 into its new pattern before the first snow fall. The work will be in both directions of Interstate 71 will be between Frank and Stringtown roads.

Before construction of the extra lane can begin, the contractor has to make sure the same number of travel lanes are available for the motoring public during peak travel times.

  • Rebuild the shoulder on the right side so that it is safe and passable for traffic, the shoulder lane becomes a travel lane.
  • Add pavement so there is a shoulder.

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.

The project team tentatively announced that the entrance ramp from Greenlawn Avenue to I-71 north will be closed for 15 days beginning Thursday, Oct. 5. The detour is Greenlawn Avenue to Harmon Avenue to West Mound Street to I-70 east.

As we get closer to entrance ramp closures, the Ohio Department of Transportation will provide notification.

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.
