As summer approaches, road closures and construction quickly fill the streets. Mahoning County will see construction and road closures starting tomorrow.

Beginning Friday, May 20 at 7 p.m., the ramp from the Ohio Turnpike to I-80 eastbound will close for pavement repairs until Sunday, May 22 at 11 a.m.

ODOT's detour will be from "Mahoning Avenue to State Route 46 to State Route 11 northbound to I-80."

More pavement repairs and diamond grinding are scheduled on I-76 and I-80, and will result in nightly lane restrictions from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. This project is expected to finish by the end of June 2022.

The lane restrictions on I-76 will occur between State Route 534 and the I-80 and Ohio Turnpike. On I-80 these lane restrictions will occur "between the Ohio Turnpike to just east of State Route 46."

More nightly lane restrictions for pavement repairs and a nightly ramp closure will occur on I-680 starting May 23. 

The ramp connects I-680 to Route 422 and State Route 193. During the closure, the detour will take drivers on "Glenwood Avenue to Edwards Street to Marshall Street to State Route 193." The ramp will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. and will reopen at all times on May 27.

The lane restrictions on I-680 will be between I-80, State Route 11 and South Avenue from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. The nightly closures, which will focus on pavement repairs, won't finish until late September 2022.

Also starting on May 23 is a road closure in Springfield Township. Unity Road will close between Columbiana Road and Garfield Road for culvert repairs and replacements. Night closures may occur.

A detour is scheduled on Columbiana Road to Beard Road to Garfield Road.

Later in the summer, two bridges, which pass over I-680, will be under construction. The bridge on Bella Vista Avenue will be replaced while the bridge on Four Mile Run Road will be repaired. Detours are arranged, and the project is expected to end in late October 2022.

Route 422 and State Route 62 will have lane restrictions for pavement repairs, and Route 62 and State Route 7 will have lane restrictions for resurfacing throughout the summer.
