Work on the Mound Street connector in downtown Columbus will continue this weekend, and road closures are scheduled.

Lane restrictions will begin Friday night on I-70 West.

On Saturday at 9 p.m., I-70 West will be closed between Miller-Kelton and the I-70/71 split. Drivers will be forced to exit I-71 North and follow a detour to I-670 West to state Route 315 South. That detour will lead back to I-70. The ramps to I-70 West from Miller-Kelton and Livingston Avenue will also be closed.

At 11 p.m., the ramp from I-70 West to I-71 North will be reduced to one lane.

All lanes and ramps are expected to be open by 8 a.m. on Sunday.
