DEMOREST ROAD CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENTS

Demorest Road Closures

Due to safety concerns and unforeseen conditions, lane restrictions for the Demorest Road Improvements project, between Grove City Road and Basswood Avenue, have changed to full road closures to through traffic until October 2022. The schedule of construction events is:

  • Demorest Road north of Grove City Road to Basswood Avenue remains closed to all through traffic through Oct. 2022. Only local traffic (those residents living within the closure or those needing access to Beulah Park Middle School site or the Seventh Day Adventist Church) should enter the construction zone and travel northbound to their home through the closure area. Follow posted detours.
  • Full closure of the Grove City and Demorest roads intersection for 30 days for traffic signal installation and intersection widening will occur in October, dates to be announced. Detours will be posted and may vary by destination.

View and print the Demorest Road detour map.

The main entrance and parking lot for Breck Community Park are closed for the duration of the project, through October 2022.

⇒ Ramp Meter at I-71 northbound and Stringtown Road

A new ODOT-controlled traffic light ramp meter at the entrance ramp from Stringtown Road to I-71, will cycle on when I-71 north is experiencing a heavy flow of traffic. It is anticipated the traffic light will be rarely activated.

When the ramp meter is active, drivers entering I-71 north are required to stop when the light is red and proceed to enter only after the light turns green, allowing only one vehicle from each lane to enter.

Ramp meters detect speed and occupancy of mainline lanes, allowing cars to enter the highway from the ramp at the appropriate times to promote the most efficient flow of traffic. Ramp metering is proven to reduce travel time and crashes.

When interstate traffic is flowing at normal speeds, the ramp meter will not turn red or require drivers to stop on the ramp. Congestion and slow traffic on I-71 north triggers the ramp meter to turn red.

⇒ US 62 Southbound I-71 Ramp Closure

The ramp from US 62 to I-71 southbound closes as part of the I-71 widening project in southwest Franklin County. The ramp will be closed until December 2022 as crews replace and reconstruct the southbound side of the I-71 bridge over US 62.

Traffic on I-71 southbound at US 62 will shift to the northbound side. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in both directions. This traffic pattern will be in effect until December 2022.
