COLUMBUS-- City officials closed State Route 315 in both directions between I-70 and I-670 for several hours Saturday.

The closure was due to crews testing the Franklinton Floodwall gates that cross SR-315 near Spring Street. Once every three years, federal safety regulations require that the six gates extending along the Scioto River between I-670 and Frank Road are tested.

Detours for this closure included Interstates I-70 and I-71, as well as West Broad Street.

The highway reopened Saturday night.
