Weekly weekend reports from District 6 of the Ohio Department of Transportation now feature on 1808Delaware. This year, we’re calling this feature the “Orange Cone Alert.”

Each week, we will bring you news of construction projects in Delaware and Franklin Counties. All of the following work is weather dependent.


DELAWARE

State Route 315

NEW IMPACTS

SR 315 between Hyatts Rd. and Home Rd. will close starting Monday, August 28 at 7 a.m. through Friday, September 8 at 3 p.m. for culvert replacement.

  • Detour: SR 315 to Home Rd. to U.S. 23 to Hyatts Rd. or reverse. 

State Route 37

CONTINUING IMPACTS

SR 37 between the city of Sunbury corporation limits and the Licking County Line will have daily lane restrictions (7 a.m. – 5 p.m.) starting Monday, April 3 through September 2023 for resurfacing and guardrail replacement. 


FRANKLIN

Interstates 70/71 Reconstruction

I-70/71 will experience lane restrictions through downtown Columbus to widen and reconstruct the roadway, replace bridges over the interstate, rebuild ramps, and construct new urban avenues parallel to the interstate. Various downtown ramps will permanently close. Estimated completion: Fall 2025

For more information about the Downtown Ramp Up project please visit ohgo.com/7071.


CONTINUING IMPACTS

  • The I-70 eastbound exit ramp to Front St. closed permanently June 17, 2022 so crews can construct a new exit ramp. The detour is I-70 east to Livingston Ave. to N. 4th St. to W. Mound St. to High St. or Front St. To access the Franklin County Court House parking garage on Front St., drivers should follow the detour to southbound High St. and continue to Sycamore St. to northbound Front St.
  • W. Fulton St. closed permanently June 17, 2022 between Short St. and Ludlow St.
  • Livingston Ave. closed to through traffic at City Park Ave. on June 17, 2022 until Fall 2024. Traffic coming from the exit ramp will not be impacted.
  • The traffic pattern on the ramp from SR 315 south to I-70 east changed June 17, 2022. Instead of SR 315 south traffic remaining in its own lane to join I-70 east, traffic coming from SR 315 south will have to merge with I-70 east traffic. This pattern will be in effect for a little more than a year. 
  • Beginning October 7th, Front St. converted to two-way traffic between W. Mound St. and W. Fulton St.
  • The Front St. bridge over I-70 closed Saturday, October 29 for bridge replacement until Spring 2025.

  • The I-70 westbound ramp to SR 315 northbound closed Saturday, March 25 for 6 months.
    • Detour: I-70 westbound to Rich/Town St. exit to SR 315 northbound.
