According to Fox 28, this weekend marks the second of several weekends the Ohio Department of Transportation will close part of I-670 and I-71 near downtown Columbus for pavement repairs and resurfacing. This weekend, crews are working on I-670 westbound and I-71 north.

While impactful, completely closing part of I-670 and I-71 for a whole weekend is more time efficient than working each night on a small section of pavement. That could take months.

Here’s how traffic will be impacted:

FRIDAY, APRIL 24—(NEW) INTERSTATE 670 WEST

At 8 PM, the following ramps will close:

– Dublin Rd. to I-670 west to I-70. (Detour is Dublin Rd. east to SR 315 south)

– Miller-Kelton to I-70 west (Detour is Main St. or Livingston Ave. to 3rd St. to I-70 west)

At 9 PM, the following ramps will close:

– I-71 south to I-670 west. Traffic will be re-routed to I-70 west.

At 9 PM, I-670 west is closed. Traffic must either go to I-71 north or I-71 south.

At 10 PM, I-70 east is reduced to two lanes between Short St. and I-71 north. I-70 west is reduced to two lanes between Miller-Kelton and I-71 north.

At 10 PM, the ramps from I-70 east and west to I-71 north close.

(Detour for I-70 west is SR 315 north to I-270 east to I-71 north) Drivers trying to get to MAPFRE Stadium, 11th or 17th Avenues, use SR 315 north to I-670 east Leonard Ave. to 5th Ave. to I-71 north.

By 5 AM MONDAY, all ramps and lanes of I-670 west and I-71 north will be open.
