Impacts to I-270 SOUTH Near Easton All Weekend
Starting Friday, crews will continue extensive concrete repair work on I-270 between SR 161 and I-670, weather permitting. This weekend’s work will impact southbound drivers only.
That means drivers who are headed to Easton, Gahanna or the airport this weekend should allow extra travel time to get through the work zone safely. Read the signs and pick your lane early.
Since two lanes of I-270 south will be closed, drivers will want to stay right. The Morse Road exit will not take you through on I-270 south. That lane is an exit only lane for Morse Road. To continue on I-270 south, 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.
FRIDAY, JULY 14-MONDAY, JULY 17
8 PM: I-270 south thru lanes will close at SR 161. At SR 161, northbound traffic must stay right of the concrete barrier.
8 PM: The ramp from SR 161 west to I-270 south will be reduced to one lane.
5 AM Monday: All lanes and ramps will reopen.
I-270 south ramps to and from Morse Road will remain open.
SB Lanes Closed
These concrete repairs are part of a $14 million project that is widening the I-670/270 interchange as well as raising the Goshen Bridge over I-270. The entire project is expected to be complete this fall.
