Extra lane, ramp closing Thursday through weeked on eastbound I-475


Extra lane and ramp closings will occur Thursday night and over the weekend on eastbound I-475 as traffic is shifted through the West Toledo construction zone, the Ohio Department of Transportation says.

Between Thursday at 9 p.m., and running through Friday at 6 a.m., westbound I-475 may be reduced to one lane for barrier wall relocation.

On Friday at 9 p.m., eastbound I-475 between Monroe Street to I-75 will be reduced to one lane through Sunday.

During the weekend, the ramp from eastbound I-475 to northbound I-75 will be closed, starting at midnight Friday and reopening sometime Sunday.

The pattern shift also will require a three-hour closing of the eastbound exit at ProMedica Parkway from 9 p.m. Friday through midnight Saturday. The eastbound entrance from Douglas will close for a longer span, starting at 8 p.m. Friday and reopening sometime on Sunday.

When the shift is finished, traffic will use the freshly rebuilt and expanded right lanes. A similar shift will occur on the westbound side within two to four weeks, spokesman Theresa Pollick said.
