Ohio Turnpike Construction Update

Construction workers are laying foundations for new light poles along the shoulder of Ohio’s Turnpike, in Lorain County. As a result, the emergency lanes will be closed for about a half-mile stretch of Ohio’s Turnpike, between mile marker 142 and mile marker 143, until Friday, January 10. The closure will affect the eastbound lanes only.

The closures could potentially slow exit traffic approaching the I-80 / I-90 Junction, particularly during peak travel times.
