I-280 to be shut tonight at Front St. for work

I-280 will be closed in both directions at Front Street for as long as 13 hours this evening and overnight while segments are positioned for a new span of the Veterans Glass City Skyway overhead, the Ohio Department of Transportation announced yesterday.

Beginning at 6 p.m., the freeway will be closed in both directions at Front. Northbound traffic will be able to exit at Front, travel a short distance east, and then reverse direction to re-enter I-280. However, southbound motorists will not be able to re-enter I-280 until the Navarre Avenue entrance because the Front entrance to southbound I-280 is closed for reconstruction.

Motorists headed from downtown Toledo to southbound I-280 should use Woodville Road instead.

The I-280 closing is scheduled to end by 7 a.m. tomorrow, but the freeway could reopen sooner than that if the work involved is finished ahead of schedule, ODOT spokesman Andrea Voogd said.
