North Side Mega Fix New Ramp
The new ramp from Interstate 270 west to SR 315 is now open and in its final configuration. All striping is complete. Early morning rain and wet pavement delayed the ramp opening until just after noon today.
Since this is a new ramp on the ODOT I-270/SR 315/US 23 North Side Mega Fix project, it will take drivers a little time to adjust.
Pay attention to the over head signs and pick your lane whether you are continuing through on I-270 or exiting at SR 315.
The new ramp means drivers must decide sooner if they want to access SR 315.
This graphic should help drivers figure out the new traffic pattern.
The North Side Mega Fix is expected to be complete next month meaning all lanes, ramps and bridges will be open.
This new ramp has been under construction for two years and is part of ODOT’s North Side Mega Fix project. The $70 million project is building new bridges, ramps and lanes to improve traffic flow and safety at the the interchanges of 270 and 23 and 270 and 315.
When the new SR 315 ramp opens, the temporary ramp that drivers have been using will go away. The new ramp to SR 315 also means drivers have to pay attention to overhead signing and pick their lane BEFORE they get to US 23.
Below is a graphic detailing the lane assignments.
New 315 Ramp
Over the next month, ODOT plans to open all ramps, lanes and bridges on the I-270/US 23/SR 315 North Side Mega Fix Project, weather permitting. The road will be paved before winter, but the final surface course of asphalt will not applied until next year.
North Side Fix Update
Even though the new ramp from I-270 west to SR 315 is open, the striping is not complete due to the rain. That means after the morning commute and when the pavement is drive enough, construction crews will be back working to correct the pavement markings.
In the meantime, motorists should use extreme caution as overhead signing and the lane lines do not match.
Drivers who want to exit at SR 315 from I-270 west should stay in the far right lane.
West Side Ramp Open
