Attention East Side Drivers
Another weekend of work is planned on I-270 near Easton
For drivers who are heading to Easton, Westerville or New Albany, ODOT advises drivers to read the signs and pick your lane early to get through the work zone safely.
Expect delays throughout the weekend and seek alternate routes if possible.
Since two lanes of I-270 north will be closed, drivers will want to stay right. The Morse Road exit will not take you through to I-270 north. That lane is an exit only lane for Morse Road. To continue on I-270 north, drivers will need to use the two right lanes.
Below is a graphic that reflects exactly what the driver will see as they approach the work zone.
