Traffic Alert: Route 224 and I-680 construction zone changes in Boardman

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - The Ohio Department of Transportation is reporting changes for drivers traveling through the construction area at route 224 and I-680.

The southbound ramp from 680 remains open, but ODOT's Justin Chesnic tells 21 News that instead of merging onto route 224, drivers will encounter a stop sign before they can make a right turn.

Chesnic says that the stop sign will be replaced with a traffic signal by the end of October.

Construction has also expanded to Tiffany Boulevard.

Chesnic says the exit ramp from northbound 680 to 224 remains closed.

One lane of traffic in each direction is being maintained on route 224 in the construction zone.

 The entire project is scheduled to be completed by late October 2014.
