Ohio Department of Transportation crews are starting the next phase of the Interstate 71 Interstate/670 project.

Beginning Friday night, the following ramps will close:

At 8 p.m., the following ramps will close:
•    Grandview Ave. to I-670 East
•    Neil Ave. to I-670 East
•    4th St. to I-670 East
•    Convention Center Dr. to I-670 East

At 9 p.m., the following ramps will close:
•    I-70 east to I-670 east on the west side (NOTE: One lane will be open to get to SR 315 north so Buckeye Fans can get to the stadium for the Illinois game on Saturday)
•    US 33/Dublin Rd. to I-670 East
•    SR 315 North and South to I-670 East

At 10 p.m., I-71 South to I-670 West will be reduced to one lane.

At 11 p.m., I-670 west will be reduced to one lane from I-71 to the High St. cap.

Some good news is ahead for drivers, though.

The ramps from I-670 West to 3rd and High streets will permanently reopen, as will the ramp from Neil Avenue to I-670 East.

Keeping in mind the Ohio State game on Saturday, ODOT officials will keep one lane of I-670 East to S.R. 315 North open.

ODOT plans to close more ramps later in November for Phase 2 of the project.
