Weekend Traffic Changes Could Impact Fans Attending Ohio State’s Night Game
There's a lot going on this weekend with the Ohio State game and the Home and Garden Show going on all weekend at the Fairgrounds. But, construction will get in the way, especially on I-71.
The ramp from Broad St. to I -71 north will also close at 8:00 p.m. The freeway and ramp will open to traffic on Monday morning at 5 a.m.
At 9:00 p.m., I-70 east will be reduced to two lanes at Grant Avenue.
At 10:00 p.m., I-71 North will be closed through downtown and detoured onto I-670 East. From there you'll have to take Leonard Avenue to I-670 West to I-71 North.
You'll also see barrels on Lane Avenue and traffic will be down to one lane between Neil and High Streets.
The brand new roundabout is now ready at North Star Rd. and Waltham Rd./Kinnear Rd. That should allow for better traffic flow before and after the game.
There are also parking restrictions in place on North Star Road, along with others in the Upper Arlington area. "No Parking" signs will be posted along affected roads.
