Construction work that began earlier this week is scheduled to expand Thursday, impacting more than 13,000 drivers who use one of the busiest highways in Warren and Howland.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says it is closing the eastbound lane of East Market Street to Warren Sharon Road for a $700,000 interchange reconfiguration project.

ODOT expects the closure to continue until September.

The recommended detour is State Route 82 eastbound to State Route 46 northbound.

The entire project is targeted for completion by late November.
