Ohio Department of Transportation I-71 Widening Project Daily Update

The Ohio Department of Transportation reports I-71, SR 104 and I-270 will experience various lane and ramp restrictions to reconstruct and widen I-71 between downtown Columbus and Stringtown Road through December 2020. Work includes replacing bridges, realigning and reconfiguring interchanges and intersections, rebuilding ramps and constructing noise walls.

  • Project work includes the completion of:
    • The express lane on I-71 north, between Stringtown Road and I-270;
    • The addition of a noise wall on the west side of I-71 from north of White Road to the existing noise wall;
    • The new Stringtown Road southbound ramp final configuration map.
      The project doesn’t modify the I-270 west to I-71 south ramp, but congestion will be reduced. The southbound traffic exiting at Stringtown Road will exit before getting to I-270, making it easier for the westbound to southbound traffic to merge without the weaving and jockeying for position with the Stringtown Road traffic.

All work is weather dependent; it may be postponed or cancelled without prior notice.

Weather permitting, the contractor may be working in various locations on the Southside Mega Fix construction project. Drivers are encouraged to use extra care when traveling through construction areas.

Please note: there will be overnight work during the project.

If necessary, updates will be posted on the City’s Facebook and Twitter pages. For additional information, call the Grove City Public Service Department at 614-277-1100.

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 open by 5 a.m. on weekdays.
