Construction project to close part of I-70 for the weekend

COLUMBUS -- This weekend drivers can expect some major delays on the roads around Columbus as crews prepare for temporary closures on I-70.

Beginning Friday, I-70 EB and WB between SR-315 and I-71 will close to demolish the Grant Street Bridge.

ODOT:

By Sunday morning, weather permitting, the entire concrete bridge deck will be gone, and the only thing remaining will be the steel beams. Those beams will be removed during overnight closures within the next few weeks.

The new Grant St. Bridge -- which is expected to open in about nine months -- is one in a series of ODOT projects to improve the I-70/71 corridor through downtown Columbus.

This weekend's closure will have I-70 EB closed until Sunday morning; I-70 WB will be open Saturday morning. Below is a graphic of the closure and more specific details.
