I-76/I-77 interchange at S Main St and S Broadway St
Starts: July 2016
Ends: July 2020
This project will reconfigure the I-76/I-77 interchange at S Main St and S Broadway St. Proposed exits include: northbound S Broadway St, northbound S Main St and southbound S Main St. Proposed entrances include: two eastbound at S Main St, and one westbound at S Main St. S Main St will be widened to accommodate two-way traffic between Bartges St and Miller Ave. S Main St will become the main arterial through the area, rather than S Broadway St. S Broadway St will be bisected at I-77/I-76, but remain open to business to the south. S Broadway St to the north will remain open for exiting traffic from I-76/I-77. In addition, the on/off ramps at both Grant St and Wolf Ledges Pky will be eliminated.
A full rendering of this project can be found on the Ohio Department of Transportation website.
Anticipated Maintenance of Traffic
Two lanes of traffic both northbound and southbound will be maintained at all times.
